Can Cleft be Cured?
Through surgery, clefts can be repaired, provided the baby is physically fit and strong enough for the operations.
A person (male or female) born with a cleft that has no obvious cause has a greater chance of having a child with a cleft (1:700)
Leaving a Cleft Untreated
Children with untreated clefts are often very isolated and lonely, becoming social outcasts because of their severely altered appearance & inability to communicate properly

Is Cleft A Curse?
A cleft is not a curse. Parents may reject their infant by trying to hide her or even abandoning her to others’ care believing their child is cursed. Strong traditional beliefs and lack of education lead some parents to think the baby is being punished for their own misdeeds. Such beliefs may cause overwhelming stress, guilt, and shame, and thus impair the parents’ ability to react properly. Parents sometimes deny the seriousness of an open cleft. Other parents panic and reject their cleft infant completely.
