Story of Md. Yousuf
Often times, it brings confusion in marriages as accusing fingers go in wrong directions. And in Yousuf’s case the same thing happened. Because of Yousuf’s cleft lip, his daughter’s marriage has been called off.
Md. Yousuf, 55 years old man and father of four children was born with cleft lip in a poor family in FotikchariUpazila, Chittagong. Villagers of his village called him “Cleft Lip Yousuf”. Yousuf came to know about LMRF’s Free of cost treatment of Cleft Lip & Palate surgery through Shopan team. When The ShopanTeam met him at first time, he speaks softly but the pitch in his voice is noticeably unclearbut we saw an urge to live a normal healthy life in his eyes.
Md. Yousuf’s surgery was done by Dr. Ayub Ali with his expert team. After his successful surgery he said that “If this operation could be performed some years ago, then my daughter’s marriage has not been called off.”
