The most unique dining experience: Eating with The Cleft Collection silverware
More than 100,000 children across Asia are born every year with cleft lip and/or cleft palate and do not have access to plastic surgery and treatment that will change their lives for the better. While these genetic deformities are not immediately life-threatening, such patients will experience difficulties in feeding and forming speech if their cleft goes uncorrected. While the procedure is generally inexpensive and easily accessible in advanced nations like Singapore , it is not the case for many developing markets. This is why Smile Asia organises overseas missions to deliver care to children with cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities.
