The life of Sajem has changed completely. A boy who once could not speak and eat properly has now found a new meaning of life. Thanks to the cleft lift surgery camps organized by Touching Souls International, hundreds of people like Sajem has now started expressing their feelings and emotions through words. The initiative has brought smiles to scores of families across different villages of Bangladesh. Over the years, the cleft lip surgery camps organized by this nonprofit organization have really brought a wave of difference to the lives of these underprivileged people and has given them a new hope to live and see life in an optimistic way.
The cleft lift surgery program initiated by Touching Souls International is one of the numerous benevolent activities that we do. Cleft lift disorder is prevalent in many parts of Bangladesh and this free surgery program is an initiative by us to free the country of this problem. Apart from the facial and appearance disorders, cleft lift problems can also lead to loss of speech. Children are more prone to this disease. Under the cleft lift surgery camps, children and patients are provided with surgery and other treatment procedures absolutely free of cost.
The cleft lift surgery program is a part of the health care program by us in an endeavor to provide high class health and medical services to poor and the backward class. Initiated in the year 2001, the project consists of a team of expert physicians such as Dr.Khalil – Ur Rahman and Dr. Samanta Lal Sen, who have successfully conducted surgeries on more than 700 children and patient across the country.
In an effort to make the cleft-lip surgery camps well coordinated and widespread, Touching Souls International has an expert medial team which travels to various districts of Bangladesh and organize these camps, most of which are done in collaboration with local hospitals and clinics. Like in Dhaka, we work along with the Cleft- lip Camp Group of Dhaka Medical College Hospital to provide support to the neighboring areas and districts.
Our cleft lift surgery program is based on the sole objective- serving mankind to the fullest degree.
