» Chang­ing lives – one smile at a time!

Caernarfon Herald - - NOSTALGIA -

IN Novem­ber, 24 Ro­tar­i­ans, plus their friends and guests, dined at the Cae Mor Ho­tel (next to Venue Cymru) prior to hear­ing a pre­sen­ta­tion from Peter Tivy-Jones, Nanette Tivy-Jones and Anna Cham­b­ley about their or­gan­i­sa­tion North­ern Cleft Foun­da­tion (NCF)

NCF ex­ists to help bring hope to some of the 25,000- 30,000 peo­ple a year in In­dia who are born with ei­ther a cleft lip, a cleft palate - or both - by send­ing vol­un­tary medics and an­cil­lar­ies to In­dia to per­form life-chang­ing op­er­a­tions, mainly on chil­dren

The three speak­ers were part of an over­all team of 60 who flew out to In­dia last year, at their own ex­pense, to work with the Ro­tary Club of Nag­pur West on a week-long clinic, with dou­ble op­er­at­ing the­atres

This work has been go­ing on since 2001 and full de­tails of their story ap­pears at http:// www.north­ern­cleft­foun­da­tion.co.uk/ our-story/
