Donate a Smile to a Child

Many young kids of the world today are staining from cleft lip. Oral clefting happens when the tissues of the lip and/or palate of a fetus don't augment simultaneously early in pregnancy.

The risk may be higher for children whose sibling or parents have a cleft or who have a history of clefting in their families. Both mothers and fathers can overtake on a gene or genes that can assist to the development of cleft palate or cleft lip. (Kaplan, pp. 356-68)
