Dakar & Thies, Senegal

Senegal has a large number of underserved cleft patients. Although the incidence of clefts in Africa is not as high as in some other continents, the number of patients who did not undergo cleft repair is quite high due to the lack of financial resources and nationwide healthcare system that allows the rendering of such care.
