CHATTOGRAM: Evercare Hospital Chattogram and Evercare Foundation gifted smiles to three under-privileged children having cleft lip and palate through successful surgery on them at the hospital recently.

The announcement came at a press conference at the hospital auditorium on Monday.

The surgery was performed by leading Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon Professor Dr Mrinal Kanti Sarker, funded by the Evercare Foundation as part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives.

The hospital officials said Evercare Foundation is a non-profit organisation that strives to fulfil the promise of the 2030 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by providing equitable healthcare for vulnerable communities.

In Bangladesh, Evercare Foundation has partnered with Evercare Hospital Chattogram to provide treatment to children with cleft lips and plates that will allow children from rural villages to smile and lead a normal life.

The three patients who underwent the surgery were Nayem Hossain, 01, of village Kalapani at Ramgarr in Khargachari district, Ran Way Mro, 10 of the city's Pahartali area and Ainul Islam Samir, 8 months old, of Mirsharai upazila in the district.

All three patients are currently in stable condition and are expected to make a complete recovery soon, they said.

“Around six thousand children are born with cleft lip and palate in Bangladesh each year and many of these children do not have access to quality healthcare. We are delighted to have been able to help these three patients,” said Chief Operating Officer (CEO) Samir Singh of the hospital.

“Cleft palate surgery is a complex procedure, but our team of experienced surgeons was able to perform it successfully,” he said.  

Mentionable, Evercare Hospital Chattogram is a leading private hospital in Bangladesh that provides a wide range of medical services, including cleft palate surgery.
