Loja, Ecuador-Liliana Vazquez, Interplast Communications Technology Coordinator
Three-year-old David arrived at the clinic accompanied by his father. Unlike other kids around him, he sat quietly on his father’s lap awaiting his turn. David was born with a bilateral cleft lip and palate. On this trip the Interplast surgeons will be fixing his lip first. The night before David’s operation his father spent the night on a chair by his bedside, both anxious and concerned, but well aware of the impact this operation would have on his son’s life.
