Rupam Das (3 year old) is the only child of his parents and his father, Samir Das is a daily wage earner. They live in a village named Shimulia in North 24 Paraganas. Though he is a 3 year old child, Rupam due to his Cleft Palate could not speak properly. His family was worried because Rupam found it difficult to have his food properly.
Samir Das, took him to a hospital in Habra of West Bangal where the doctor suggested Cleft surgery for Rupam. But being a daily wage earner, he could not even think of affording surgery his child desperately needed. Samir accidently came across a poster of Mission Smile in their village market. But as it happens sometime, the family finally had a ray of hope for Rupam’s surgery.
He brought Rupam to our Outreach Centres, NH Hospital in Barasat, West Bengal on 24th February, 2016. Rupam was screened by the doctors and selected for surgery. On 25th February 2016, Rupam’s Cleft Palate surgery was performed successfully.
It was a great relief for Samir and his family to get back their toddler’s clear speech. Samir thanked J Thomas & Company for supporting his son’s surgery. He also thanked Mission Smile bringing hope and changing their lives. It’s an overwhelming feeling for Mission Smile team to restore Rupam’s smile and clear speech!
