How Can We Help“Every 11 minutes a child is born somewhere in the world with a cleft lip and palate. This gene is certainly one of the most important to be identified. ...”
You can help Scotland's cleft charity in its ultimate aim to reduce the number of children born with cleft lip & palate by supporting research into this area in Scotland. You can help through a group, a company, a trust, a school, or just volunteer by participating in an event. However you choose to help, your support will be of great value.
“We hope that families who are affected by cleft lip or palate take some comfort from the fact scientists are making important inroads into understanding this common condition. But if the funding isn't available, breakthroughs like this won't happen”.
