Since 2001 Touching Souls International, a nonprofit organization provided 36 cleft lip camps in different districts of Bangladesh. in each camp it provided free cleft lip surgeries to 15 to 70 disadvantage people, saving them from the curse of not being socially acceptable, giving them a new hope to live.
There are so many of children and adult with cleft lips and palates in Bangladesh who have little to no prospect of ever being helped. They are so poor, they could never afford surgery. So they wait and they hope and they pray that someday, someone will come along and help them from their curse of having the cleft lip/cleft palate and give them the freedom to smile like a normal human being, not to be ashamed of their look.
