Yorii Betama in Dushanbe

The successful help for cleft children in Tajikistan is owed mainly to the ENT doctor and man of action Dr Martin Kamp who hails from the German town of Kempen. He started the aid project in 2009. Today Dushanbe has a qualified cleft centre in which affected children and families can receive high-quality help. Dr Abdullo Hasanovic now regularly operates on cleft patients in the facility. The Tajik organisation Yorii Betama, which was co-founded by Martin Kamp, searches for cleft children in all parts of the county and brings them to Dushanbe where they can be treated. Martin Kamp also regularly organises campaigns from Germany to provide the local doctors with further training and to develop and equip the necessary departments to be prepared for the treatment of cleft children. This includes ENT-treatment, orthodontic measures and speech therapy. We have committed to provide financial support for the operations that are carried out locally. With an annual GDP of less than US$1,000 per head Tajikistan remains one of the world's poorest countries.
