Sohag University Hospital Surgical Supplies
Cleft Lip & Palate Instrument Set for Sohag University Hospitals
Cleft lips and/or palates are common birth conditions for many Egyptian children who depend on surgery to restore normal function with minimum scarring. Otherwise these children suffer from feeding difficulties and can face isolation and social prejudice for the majority of their lives. This is a fundraising campaign to help secure a much needed surgical instrument for this restorative type of surgery for Sohag university public hospitals. Sohag is an underserved Egyptian city with a population of 5 million and one of the highest income poverty levels in the country (58.6%). Securing this instrument has far reaching consequences for the quality of life and future earning potential of many of the city’s children with this condition. We are targeting to purchase 2 such surgical sets amounting to a total of $30,000.
