Creating bright smiles and brighter futures
Every day we experience how strong the human spirit can be. We hear courage in the voices of parents asking for help, we see compassion in the eyes of doctors, dentists, and nurses who skillfully perform life-changing surgeries, and we witness joy in the smiles of the children who grow up to be happy, healthy members of society.
The Nampharm Foundation was created to address the needs of children who are unable to access the expensive medical care they require. By providing free facial reconstructive surgery to vulnerable kids, we can help level the playing field and give every child a fair chance to lead a fulfilling life
What causes Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate?
At present, Namibia has not conducted any research into the root causes of these conditions within its borders. These conditions typically appear as solitary birth defects, yet they can also be linked to numerous inherited genetic conditions or syndromes. Experts posit that the majority of cleft lip and cleft palate instances arise from a combination of genetic and environmental influences, however, this hypothesis has yet to be definitively proven.
Frans' mother eeded to stay in the hospital from his birth until his procedure due to health and care considerations. His first procedure was carried out earlier than usual for most of our patients. His successful recovery greatly bolstered his mother's confidence in raising her son.
The diminutive Daniel, born with a bilateral cleft lip, received aid before his first birthday, aligning with our goal to transform our patients' smiles before they reach their first year. Referred by Rundu Hospital, he recovered splendidly and is on track to grow into a strong young boy.
Domingo, who constantly greeted us with smiles since our first meeting, saw his heartwarming grin further amplified by his transformative procedure. We plan to reconnect with his family soon for his palate closure. He returned to Rundu as a vibrant, transformed 5-month-old in March 2023.
We are so happy and grateful to receive annual sponsorships and long-term commitment from our supporters. Namely First National Bank, Standard Bank, Rhino Park Private Hospital, Checkers, Dynamic Vitality, and the Namdia Foundation.
