A child born with cleft misses out on more than a brilliant smile. Cleft afflicted kids suffer from difficulty in eating, malformed teeth, ear infections, hearing loss, and speech impediments. They also endure rejection and discrimination throughout their lives which lead to low self-esteem. With already 50,000 cleft lips cases in West Bengal and Assam, it has been rising constantly with more than 5,000 new cases every year. This deformity is a serious cause of concern which needs great attention.
