Mr and mrs Ukeme were very anxious and unhappy the first day they visited CLEFT & FACIAL DEFORMITY CENTRE at Gwarinpa, Abuja. Following a tip off from a friend, they visited the centre with baby Grace who was born with cleft lip a week earlier.
“The doctors and nurses assured us. They instructed us on how to take care of the baby till the baby turns 10 weeks when she will be qualified for surgical operation. We were invited for surgery and after an hour operation, my baby’s lip has miraculously transformed” Narrated mrs Ukeme.
“We never thought Grace could have normal lip again, we are so happy and grateful to the foundation for free and qualitative surgery” says Mr Ikeme.
