The Story

ABOUT US
We are student from University of Malaya. Currently, we are Year 2 students taking Basic Entrepreneurship Culture. We would like to help in combating newborns who have cleft lip and cleft palate. As the first time we saw the campaign of Gift of Smile by Ronald McDonald House Charities Malaysia, we felt so heartbroken.

With facial defects, children would have low self-esteem and depression for being so different from everyone else. This are the common feelings they have in school and that they try to struggle every day. 

With this fund-raising campaign, we hope that we can help them in finding back their smile and confidence in their lives.

With every contribution you make, it has the potential to help thousands of children in Malaysia. Your contribution, big or small, goes a long way in making a difference in their lives.


THE SOLUTION
This disease is curable but it require a large amount of money which put huge burdens on their families.

This programme consists of 2 stages:

Stage 1:

  • Involving corrective surgery of cleft lip and palate in the initial stage.
  • The surgery is fully supported by RMHC Malaysia.
  • Accommodation and transportation are also supported by RMHC for families who had to travel long distance.

Stage 2:

  • Exclusive for children that have undergone Stage 1 corrective surgery on cleft lip and palate in the period of 5 years prior.
  •  Orthodontics and jawbone surgery is also supported by RMHC Malaysia at the partnering hospital(s).

THE IMPACT

Since the inception of this programme in 2004, more than 450 children have undergone corrective surgery that involved almost RM5 million. Still, 1 in every 700 new-born babies, in Malaysia, are born with cleft lip and palate. Thus, there are a lot of children out there who need the support for corrective surgeries, to allow them to have the gift of smile, to live a normal, healthy and happy future.

We want to impact the lives of hundreds of children by providing full funding for their mandatory first-level surgery at Hospital Universiti Sains Malaysia (HUSM).

Today, we call upon you to join us in our mission!
