Sofia Diaz's Fundraiser:

Everyone was born to Smile

THE STORY:

Everyone was born to smile. So the purpose of my project is to try to get the much needed help that children up to 19 years old, born with cleft lip and palate, in developing countries so desperately need. Donations and help will go towards this much needed corrective surgery, by continuing the scheduling of medical missions in these countries free of charge.

Cleft lip and palate occurs when the bone and tissue structures from the nasal and maxillary area do not fuse. It is quite common, every 1 of 750 new born have it. It may be caused by drugs that the mother took during gestation, a syndrome- malformation complex or a genetic factor. Children born with this malformation have great difficulty eating, actually this is one of their biggest challenges. If this is not taken care of through surgery and support and education to the families, the child will develop in the long run deafness (because of the recurrent otitis) and speech and dental problems.

Thank you for your help!
