Transforming Faces provides free, local, and ongoing multi-disciplinary cleft care for children and adults in developing countries.


Who We Are

Transforming Faces is a Canadian charity that empowers local multidisciplinary medical teams to provide free comprehensive cleft lip and palate care for children and adults in developing countries. This allows children to live full, healthy lives.

We believe in comprehensive cleft care, meaning wherever possible our local cleft teams include: audiologists, dentists, nurse co-ordinators, orthodontists, social workers, speech therapists, and surgeons.

Cleft lip and palate is one of the most common birth anomalies in the world. It can be successfully treated using a comprehensive approach. With this approach, children can be socially accepted and lead a productive life.

We know every child is beautiful – before and after their cleft care. We see first-hand how our unique long-term approach transforms the lives of children born with cleft lip and palate.

We invite you to share our goal to extend our reach to the many children waiting for their chance to live a full, healthy life.
