Amzad, a 7 year old boy from Garo Hills in Meghalaya, was born with cleft lip and palate. His mother was shocked to find her first-born with a facial deformity she had never seen before. His mother had difficulty feeding the baby. As a result, the little one was deprived of basic nutrients. As years went by, his mother became highly apprehensive about the future of her son.
Luckily for Amzad, when he was 7, a volunteer from their locality pursued his parents to visit the hospital where Mission Smile’s free cleft surgery camp was underway.
Amzad’s mother was surprised to see so many children like her little son, with cleft deformities who had come for their cleft lip treatment. She was amazed to see how the children were being wonderfully taken care of at the centre.
Amzad was examined and was selected for surgery. His surgery was successful and his wait of 7 long years ultimately ended gifting him a priceless smile.
The happy family left for home with tears of joy and a heart full of gratitude after his cleft palate repair and conveyed best wishes to Mission Smile.
Amzad was fortunate but there are thousands of kids still suffering from the deformities of cleft lip and palate in India.
