Vaishnali was just 3kg in weight at 3 months of age. Born with a wide cleft lip and palate she had struggled to feed since birth. Her operations will give her the best possible chance to thrive and develop.
Deeply upset by the stigmatization from other villagers who said she was the cause of Lucky’s problems, his Mum was keen to seek help to correct her son's cleft lip and palate.
Aditya’s Mum told us that her dream was to see her son grow to be healthy and happy and to be a doctor. Repairing his palate will help him to thrive and to develop normal speech.
