Exciting news for 2023!
After a prolonged period of being unable to travel and provide cleft care abroad because of the Covid pandemic, we are delighted to announce that in March 2023 a small Northern Cleft Foundation team will be travelling to Hanoi in Vietnam to work with a team of highly motivated Vietnamese surgeons, anaesthetists and nurses who are committed to providing high quality cleft care to the children of Vietnam.
We will be focusing on teaching, cascading skills and the establishment of safe practices to support the work of the local medical team. The long term aim is to establish collaborative working with our partners in Hanoi and thus help to improve the care given to children with clefts in Vietnam. We are thrilled to once again be in a position to use the considerable skills within the NCF team to help change children’s lives and we look forward to being able to provide further updates after our visit to Hanoi.
