3. CLEFT LIP AND PH
Since 2009, EF is also instrumental in identifying the patients suffering with limbs problem and babies with cleft lip problems and takes them to Hyderabad where they are provided with artificial ‘Jaipur limbs’ and operated, as the case may be. The RICE has already assisted 18 children for cleft-lip operations and 3 members provided jaipur limbs
Clept-lip and PH Patients
facial clefts are birth defects in which there is an opening in the lip and/or palate (roof of the mouth) that is caused by incomplete development during early fetal formation. Cleft lip and cleft palate occur in about 1 or 2 of every 1,000 babies born in the India each year, making it one of the most common major birth defects. Clefts occur more often in children of Asian. The good news is that both cleft lip and cleft palate are treatable. Most kids born with these can have surgery to repair these defects within the first 12-18 months of life. An orofacial cleft occurs when parts of the lip or palate do not completely fuse together during the first 3 months of pregnancy. A cleft lip may appear as a small notch in the edge of the lip only or extend into the nose. It may also extend into the gums.
EF and RICE had taken an initiative in 2009 and continuing its objective of providing treatment to children who are suffering with these kind health problems which is curable with little attention and effort at child’s early age. The tribal’s are uneducated and non-awareness about the treatment, they ignored it. But EF and RICE removed the misconception by visiting villages and finding children suffering with Clept lip problems. After educating the parents of patient, the patients accompanied by their guardians are taken to Hyderabad where they are received by RICE and EF personnel and taken to hospital for operation.
RICE is also instrumental in identifying the patients suffering with limbs problems apart from Clept lip children. Ekalavya Foundation had borne travelling expenses for patients from their respective villages to Hyderabad and return journey. EF personnel had taken patients suffering with limbs too to Hyderabad where artificial ‘Jaipur limbs’ and operated as per case. .
