Children born with a cleft lip or palate often face one or more of these health problems: feeding/eating/swallowing disorders, failure to thrive, delayed or disordered speech and language, breathing and hearing difficulties, chronic ear infections and dental problems.

Cleft treatment and intervention should be started as early as possible, with a proper surgical treatment plan and wraparound care into adulthood; a child should be able to restore normal function and live a happy, healthy and fulfilling life.

A child born with a cleft lip and palate often need surgeries throughout their adolescence as they grow. Some children can have dozens of surgeries by the time they reach adulthood. Austin Smiles aims to provide patients in Latin America the same wraparound support & care as provided in the US. These services are necessary for a child to enter adulthood as a confident, happy, healthy individual.

Today is - and we would like to share Andy's Story - just one of the children impacted by the generosity of Austin Smiles volunteers, donors and supporters this year.

During our trip to El Salvador, our group met 3-year-old Andy. Andy was born with a bilateral cleft lip and palate, as well as syndactyl toes and fingers. Andy and his mother, Yolanda, traveled for 3 hours to get to San Salvador in hopes of getting his surgery. Dr. Mahlon Kerr and Dr. Ross Blagg operated on Andy’s cleft lip and palate – about a 4-hour operation. His mother, Yolanda, said she felt nervous but hopeful and voiced that with this surgery, “Todo cambiará a partir de ahora,” meaning everything will change as of now. Andy is fully recovered and still his playful self; his mother says, "I am happy because in no other place would they have done this for him."
