Cleft Lip & Palate Camp in Mandera, October 2022
Safe Surgical Aid conducted a cleft lip and palate repair surgical camp at Mandera County Referral Hospital from October 12th to 19th, 2022. 54 clients registered to participate in the camp, resulting in 38 patients undergoing surgery.
The surgical team was led by Dr. Peter Oduor, a highly skilled and celebrated reconstructive surgeon, and Ms. Rachel Kangogo, a visiting nurse.
Mandera County does not have its own resident reconstructive surgeon and has been without such outreach programs for many seasons. The arrival of Safe Surgical Aid was a significant achievement for both children and adults suffering from congenital anomalies, ranging from 6 months to 29 years of age, including some patients from neighboring towns in Somalia.
The experience has reinforced our commitment to continue conducting programs that serve people with such anomalies.
