Manuel is an energetic 7 month old boy. He has a 2 year old sister that does not have a cleft. His parents heard about Rotaplast from Alexandra, a speech therapist with the non-profit Fundauniban.


Manuel is ready for surgery. It only takes about 45 minutes to repair his lip, an operation that will make a dramatic change in his life. Daireli is comforts Manuel in the recovery room following surgery.

The next morning there is hardly a trace of the cleft and the happy family is ready to head home.
