For parents, there is nothing more heartwarming than the smile on the face of their child. The innocent smile helps the parents to share a priceless moment with their kids. However this act of smile can be quite painful for few children. The reason is that they are born with cleft-lip. This takes away the smile from the innocent face giving them pain. Touching Souls International had an opportunity to meet cleft-lip children in a charity program organized by them. This health initiative was taken keeping these children in mind.
In the session our team had interacted with a lot of children affected with cleft-lip. They had shared their thoughts with us. Most of them were in the hope of getting away with this disorder and give their life a new beginning. They had bigger aims in life, someone wanted to become a doctor while some had aspired to become a teacher in life. Their inability to speak properly made them paralyzed but it could not stop them from dreaming about a successful future. When they got a chance to interact with us, they were excited to come up with their thoughts. These thoughts were solely theirs and till then no one had ever asked them about their aims in lives.
After this session, we came to a conclusion that these people needed funds to have their cleft-lip surgeries. And we will provide them the necessary monetary support. We took a pledge to be by their side and make their dreams come true for them. Our health initiative was successful when the cleft-lip surgeries of more than 700 children and adults were completed.
We are really thankful to the doctors who have lent their helpful contribution to our projects. Without their participation we wouldn’t have emerged as winners. We owe all our credits to the eminent medical professionals.
