Caris Foundation has facilitated over 800 cleft lip and cleft palate surgeries. When children are born with a cleft lip or cleft palate they are often ostracized and face a lifetime of isolation. This operation gives them the gift of normal living and acceptance. In partnership with Health Talents International, we sponsor cleft lip and cleft palate surgeries operating at Clinica Caris, deep within the interior highlands of Guatemala. Caris Foundation also sponsors surgeries in various cities in China in cooperation with Chinese Agape Foundation.
