KURDISTAN

Sponsoring Cleft Lip Surgery

Since 2002, a medical team from a charity called Fundacion Caras Felices have travelled to countries all over the world to operate on children with cleft lips.

These operations change the lives of children, many of whom cannot eat or speak properly. When the charity headed to Kurdistan to set up a cleft-lip surgery camp, they were able to operate on 55 children. The mission was a success, both in terms of treating children and passing on their skills to other medical staff. Hart provided logistical support and contributed towards the project’s target of 10 000 Euros.
