NOTICE about Cleft Surgery Project
Due to the decreasing number of cleft-palate children and the availability of free cleft surgery from international organizations, SAP-VN terminates the Cleft-palate Surgery project in 2013. During its operation from 1993-2012, the Cleft Surgery project sponsored 1,560 children. Thank you for your support.
"Nguyen Thi Bich, age 6, rarely smiled. Conscious of her cleft lip and of the taunts that often accompanied her, she retreated to her house to escape the reality which awaits outside her door. Her parents worried about her future, a time when they would no longer be able to protect her. At a young age, Bich found it difficult to smile at the world. Now, thanks to the corrective surgery sponsored by SAP-VN, she smiles a lot more these days."
