Cleft Lip and Palate Surgery | Jackline's Story | Fresh Start |

Our Stories

Jackline

Jackline, age 2, was born with cleft lip & palate in Tanzania.

In a developing country like Tanzania, a physical deformity makes life very difficult for young girls. They are often kept hidden in the home.

Her corrective surgeries will alleviate many serious health issues and will allow Jackline to have peer acceptance in school, marry, find a job, and have a family.

Jackline was brought to Fresh Start by Volunteer Dentist, Dr. Kami Kohani. She has received two surgeries and medical care valued at $35,080. Although she has gone home to Tanzania, she will always be a part of the Fresh Start family!
