 "Dear friends, please accept my most sincerest thanks for your donations! It is through your support that we are able to offer sustainable care to children affected by cleft lip and palate in more than a dozen countries. We can finance the necessary operations and - where possible - follow-on treatments such as orthodontics and speech therapy. The cooperation with local doctors and therapists in our project countries is very close. Only capacity building that is anchored in the country itself has a long-term effect. In the name of all cleft children and their families I would like to thank you for your help. Every donation helps and gets to where it is needed most."

Prof Dr med Frank Feyerherd, Managing Director

Aid network

The German Cleft Children's Aid Society is guided by the principle of capacity building - helping others to help themselves - and strives to develop local competence centres and aid networks that are run by locals. The most important part of this, besides actually helping the affected children, is the support and fostering of independence and autonomy of the participating project partners and the development of our international aid network which itself continues to develop and support the help provided to the cleft children. By linking our project partners and specialists beyond political and religious borders it was possible to establish a significant network that is comprised of several disciplines and which continues to develop the comprehensive and interdisciplinary treatment of children with cleft lip and palate.
