Thank you

It’s a sin that they have to grow up like that and it’s something that can be corrected.

Great choice of the article!

Treated cleft lip is like the rebirth of a kid undergoing misery due to this defect.

Certain details were missing: 1. relevant links of charity organization which deal with this. 2. Also you mentioned “Satish Kalra, the South Asia director of the charity”. 3. Approximate cost of operation or link.

Can you provide these details?
