KT Care’s volunteer from Ngapudaw: U Thin Htoo

My name is U Thin Htoo, a member of Myanmar Disability Association,
Nagpudaw. In my experience, some infants are born with cleft lip and cleft palate because of the lack of nutritional foods, knowledge and low family income in this region.

I have been working with KT Care for 2 years as a volunteer. I find cleft patient’s information and accompany the person to Yangon where the surgery is performed. About 15 children have successfully received surgeries provided by KT Care.

Three patients were sent to KT Care in March.I believe KT Care’s provision of cleft palate surgery is restoring human dignity and self confidence by transforming the appearance of the patients . I am proud to support  KT Care’s work.
