Published on 21-02-2013 - at 01:07'

Over 100 people with cleft lips are set to benefit from free reconstructive surgery to be conducted at the University Central Hospital of Kigali (CHUK).

The free surgical programme will start on February 22 to March 1st. |It was organized by Operation Smile, a non-profit volunteer medical services organization providing free reconstructive surgery.

A cleft lip is a malformation where the lip has not fused together and fully formed and looks like a gap in the upper lip while a cleft palate is a hole in the roof of the mouth.

Operation Smile will be operating on people with this deformity for the fourth time since 2010.

Currently, there’s no national data showing the status of this disease in Rwanda.
