Our recruitment coordinator Vipul Christian from Vadodara while educating the workers of ASHA (Accredited Social Health Activists) on cleft deformities and its treatment, came to know about an eleven-month-old child named Vivek from a nearby village, who was born with cleft lip and palate deformities. He was informed by ASHA workers that the little boy’s parents were advised by a God-man that their son’s cleft lip defect will seal by itself if they offered regular prayer and offerings to him.
Without waiting further, Vipul went to the small village where Vivek lives and met his parents. He counselled and convinced them that the God-man was an imposter and brought the family to Mission Smile Outreach Centre at Isha Hospital in Vadodara.
Soon, little Vivek received his cleft lip surgery and was discharged in two days. Vivek’s healing was fast and his parents were astounded by the recovery! Now they are eagerly waiting for his cleft palate surgery after which their little boy will be able to speak without difficulty.
We will be closely following little Vivek’s journey of transformation from cleft to smile.
Vivek was fortunate but there are thousands of kids in India waiting to be treated.
