Most of our patients have surgical needs common throughout the world. However, in rural Guatemala problems are seen that should have been addressed when the problem was first noticed but by waiting, the problem has become a major issue.
Jacinto was born with a severe cleft lip and palate in the rural Guatemala area of Nebaj, Quiche. His parents, Jose and Maria, agonized over his care and the future that surely awaited a child with his deformity.
Oscar Martinez was thrilled when he discovered, two years ago, that he was going to become a father. When Angel was born, however, sadness hit him when he saw that, just like him, his son had cleft lip and cleft palate.
