Turjo, 5 months old infant was born with Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate. Turjo is the only child of Tanmay Roy and Sadhana Roy. When Sadhana heard the news of her pregnancy, she was extremely happy. Both Tanmay and Sadhana were eagerly waiting for the day of their child’s birth. But their life was shattered when they saw their child’s face. It was very heartbreaking for them to see their child’s difficulties due to Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate.
Turjo could not swallow his mother’s milk as the milk used to come out of his nose due to the missing palate. Seeing her child’s condition, Sadhana could not control her tears. She was very helpless as she could not feed Turjo properly.
But for Tanmay, cleft was not new. He was also born with Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate. He had gone through Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate surgery when he was 3 years old. He knew that this deformity could be corrected by a simple surgery. But he was also very dishearten and was searching for a good surgical care for his son. At that time, Tanmoy’s friend Dr. Subhas Das who is a pediatrician in Mission Smile’s outreach centre, NH Hospital in Barasat advised him to bring Turjo at Outreach Centre for check up.
The family brought Turjo for medical checkup at Mission Smile’s outreach centre, NH Hospital, Barasat. Turjo had gone through necessary medical evaluation by the credentialed doctors. He was found fit for surgery. And on 14th Jan 2016, Turjo’s surgery was conducted successfully. After an hour or so when Turjo was brought to the ward; his family was overjoyed by seeing the face of their son. The family was very surprised to see the change and the amazing transformation.
The next day on 15th Jan 2016 before leaving the hospital, the family thanked Mission Smile and the whole team for making their son smile. They thanked the donor who sponsored the surgery and helped Turjo smile again. Tanmay thanked specially Dr. Prabir Josh, Plastic Surgeon and Mission Smile’s medical volunteer for conducting the corrective surgery.
