Its working with local professionals to be able to provide these people with resources and being able to providing the funding. Our model is sustainable and in 20 years we can see that we have built a sustainable programme involving treating cleft, and seeing actions here in Nigeria.

“We have over 49 medical partners here in Nigeria. It’s a country where we need to meet that need of making sure every child born in Nigeria with a cleft can go on and live a full productive life. It could be any of the countries in Africa but where we are focused, we make sure we make a difference,” she said.
