This association brings together Thai surgeons who perform operations (on a voluntary basis) on children with cleft lip. In fact, an operation lasting an hour or so can change a child’s whole life. In Thailand, about 500 babies are born every year with this facial deformity which causes significant impairment for eating and speech.
