Cleft Lip & Palate Surgeries

Hogar Luceros regularly partners with the local Ministry of the Family in order to coordinate health care services for people living in extreme poverty. One of our ongoing projects is to work with children with disabilities.

Over the past several months we have been in regular contact with a group of children who were born with cleft lip and palate and we have been helping to organize their multiple operations in Managua. This past Friday, a group of 9 children and their parents traveled to Managua for either their first operation or a follow up operation. Due to circumstances of physical health conditions, only 6 were operated on. But we continue to be in contact with all of them and their families in order to coordinate the necessary visits to give them the smiles that they deserve.
