CLEFT AND PALATE SURGERIES AT THE TEBOW CURE HOSPITAL
We are excited to be helping to facilitate cases for surgeries for children with cleft and/or palate congenital conditions.
In the Philippines, about 1 in every 500 births has cleft and/or palate issues. These children are often served by visiting teams which come once or twice a year to do charity surgeries, most often for cleft lip cases.
Due to the COVID pandemic, teams will likely not be coming in 2020 and even in 2021. Seeds of Dignity Ministries is working hard to identify these cases and to arrange to help transport them, if needed, to the hospital.
We are looking forward to serving about 150 cases in the next 12 months in partnership with the Tebow Cure Hospital.
