Life is unpredictable, so the story of facial birth defect referred to as Facial cleft.

Zuwaira Ahmadu from Maikujeri village in Niger state of Nigeria had her first baby 2 years ago, who was discovered to be born with facial cleft. She refused surgical option due to ignorance and the baby eventually died. Surprisingly her second baby, Seidu Ahmadu, born 10 months ago had the same birth defect. Now she has consented to the free surgery programme of Cleft & Facial Deformity Foundation.

Following the surgical procedure of artistry reconfiguration of the face that lasted just an hour and carried out by Dr Seidu Bello, a consultant maxillofacial surgeon, the face has been transformed totally and Zuwaira is full of joy. ‘I am happy and now a proud mother of a baby with no obvious deformity; thanks to science and the surgeons’ Zuwaira said on discharge 48 hours after the operation.
