Nway Yu Hlaing (4-years old) is from Pyapon Township,Ayarwaddy Region. Having been born with a cleft palate, she was discriminated against by her playmates because they saw her as different from normal. Now, following the cleft palate surgery she received from KT Care she is very happy, and says “I’ll return to my home with a fixed palate and play nonstop with my friends”.
In February, KT Care provided cleft lip/palate surgery to 10 children who come from different regions of Myanmar. Cleft lip and cleft palate surgery usually results in increased self esteem, self confidence and satisfaction with appearance.
