In Sub Saharan Africa, an alarming 7 million children and adults are battling with unrepaired cleft conditions. These individuals are often excluded from essential health services, and are further confronted with formidable barriers such as geographical distance, financial constraints, inadequate infrastructure, and lack of qualified medical professionals. By recognizing these challenges, Bela Risu Foundation has developed a sustainable approach to address this pressing global health predicament, which disproportionately burdens the African continent. As we continue to invest in local solutions, we aim to address the needs of these underserved communities.

The severity of this challenge is further amplified by the dire consequences of delayed surgical intervention. Postponed surgeries can notably result in elevated neonatal and infant mortality rates due to poor feeding and malnutrition. It is also essential to understand that prompt surgical interventions are not merely cosmetic procedures, but potentially lifesaving measures. Furthermore, performing palate repair before a child starts speaking can preclude future speech difficulties, thus eliminating the need for subsequent speech therapy. Such early interventions also foster the child's swift integration into formal schools, mitigating the stigma and isolation linked to cleft conditions.

At Bela Risu Foundation, we acknowledge that partnerships are paramount to realizing substantial social impact, instilling lasting hope, and promoting continuous positive health outcomes. As such, we actively seek to establish long-term relationships with organizations and corporations that align with our mission. Through our collective efforts, we aim to enhance access to essential surgical care, effecting tangible transformation in the lives of those we serve.
