Two-year-old Viet was born with one of the world’s rarest de­for­mi­ties: a cleft palate and bi­lat­eral facial clefts, which af­fect the way he looks and cause blind­ness in both eyes. With­out surgery, Viet will strug­gle to eat and speak. The lit­tle boy trav­els with his par­ents from Viet­nam to Eng­land. A med­i­cal team led by sur­geon Niall Kirk­patrick has of­fered to re­build his face. The surgery is lengthy and in­ten­sive and ev­ery­one in­volved (es­pe­cially lit­tle Viet) is in­spir­ing.
