Cleft Lip/Palate Patients Come and Go

We also had some cleft lip and palate surgeries.
Cleft palate patient Reine went home for good with a smile! 
Ask her to show you her fixed palate and she will gladly do so.
Siara is a 15-month-old refugee from the Central African Republic. CAR shares a border with Congo-Brazzaville, the country we are currently serving.
Siara was brought to Mercy Ships with the hope that we could provide surgery to repair her cleft lip. Because Siara was underweight, Mercy Ships medical team had to put her on a special diet. Now she is almost too big for the scale!

Things are going well, but Siara still has a little more weight to gain before she is healthy enough for surgery. Please keep her in your prayers.
