“I am waiting for the surgery and I am very excited to see how it is going to be after that,” says Sophia. “I know that it will not be an easy thing and this why I want to say thank you for the opportunity to give me a better face shape.”

Sophia is a 16-year-old girl from Haiti. She was born with a cleft lip and has had difficulties talking because of this deformation. Sophia has not let this abnormality nor the insults she receives about her appearance affect her dedication to her schoolwork. “She is very intelligent and she has many friends who support her at school,” shares our medical partner Project Medishare.

Sophia’s mother is a farmer who does her best to provide for their family and support Sophia in school. Sophia’s mother was unable to afford the surgery Sophia needed when she was a child, but now, we can come together to give Sophia this transformational surgery.

“I am waiting for the surgery and I am very excited to see how it is going to be after that,” says Sophia. “I know that it will not be an ea...
