Clara Augustine was one of the five babies operated free in the past one week at CLEFT & FACIAL DEFORMITY CENTRE, Gwarinpa Abuja.

While interacting with the doctors, Clara”s mother was emphatic when she stated that “cleft is a result of evil people.”

To her, it was a big surprise and a high sense of relief that the defect could be surgically repaired and her daughter’s face could be restored to a normal baby.

According to dr Tomi Ajose-Adeogun, cleft is not due to evil people, rather it is one of the possible abnormalities that can occur whenever there is a disruption during the formative period of a baby. “Facial Cleft occurs 6-12weeks of pregnancy” Dr Adeogun stated.

Witnessing the operation of 2 or more babies with cleft defects reduced the mothers’ wrong perception that they were the only ones who had this kind of babies.

Finally, it was so wonderful seeing the lips back to normal after surgery! Absolutely amazing
