LMRF Organized Life Changing Surgical Camp For Cleft Children.
Team CureCleft of LMRF was successfully organized CureCleft Surgical campaign in Chakaria Zam Zam Hospital at Chakaria, Chittagong on 29th July 2016. LMRF has arranged this life changing camp with the help of Smile Train, USA.
Total number of 18 Cleft lip/palate patients in Chittagong district, mainly from poor families were being consulted & treated by the Dr. Prof. Maruf Alam Chowdhury, MBBS, FCPS, Surgery; Dr. Ashikur Rahman Siddique, MBBS, FCPS, Surgery & Dr. S.M.Kibria, MBBS.
It’s like curse in our country that people aren’t well aware about the reason of cleft lip/palate deformities and what could be adverse impact of it. Providing treatment to the patients, it’s being a big challenge for LMRF to eliminate this misperception from the people’s mind that it’s a disease & which is completely curable if identification could be done at primary level.
It’s the dream of LMRF to send such deformity into the museum & which is not far away.
