I would like to thank Zara and Hilary who were along me since 2012. You  have been my amazing help and support, thank you for your hard work and dedication to support families with a cleft and Cleft.NET.East.  

Also, I would like to thank Andy, for joining us even for a short time, you ave been very supportive and so helpful, we wish that you joined us before, and that we could continue work together on CamSmile’s projects.  Wishing you all the best.

We are sorry that we are not able to continue work with Cleft.NET.East,  I hope maybe in the near future somebody will again set up local charity and start where we left..  Our team has been working so hard, and especially in this difficult time, THANK YOU for looking after our children and providing excellent care.  They will always be dear to me, I’ll never forget how much they help us from day one over 19 years ago, and provided fantastic  care to Joshua. Joshua  is a young, confident and a handsome young man, with same opportunities like any other person, THANKS to Cleft.Net.Team💜💜

TO OUR WONDERFUL SUPPORTS, THANK YOU - without your support we wouldn’t have been able to run our projects.
