Meet Moukhan Narzary.
8 long years for getting back his Smile!!
Moukhan is the youngest in his family of 4 sisters and 3 brothers. He is 8 years old – naughty and playful- just like any child of his age. Except one visible difference, Moukhan was born with Cleft lip & Cleft Palate.
Though always cheerful, a hint of sadness remained in his eyes, why he does not look and speak like his friends. His father, a poor farmer, supports the large family from a small patch of land. Going to a hospital and availing surgery for his son was a big decision to take.
He heard about Mission Smile from Social Health workers in his village. He was delighted to know that his son can avail surgery and care absolutely free of cost. Hence, he took the decision on Jan, 2016 and he and his son walked 15 kms to the nearest bus-stand and then a bus brought them to our Mission site at Guwahati.
Moukhan was screened and was found fit for surgery. Finally, the 8 years of wait came to an end when he was brought out of the operation room, his father could not believe. He had tears in his eyes. It was nothing short of a miracle for the family and the community.
You can make many such Miracles Possible !!The Cost Per Surgery for GC4 is as under:
