Date of Birth: June 2011
Date of Contact: June 2011
Location: Northern Cameroon
Condition: Bilateral cleft lip and palate.
Operation: Louis had surgery for cleft lip and palate repair on 28th November 2011 at Pette in Northern Cameroon. A visiting oral and maxillofacial team from Europe performed the surgery.
Current Needs & Updates: Louis was having real difficulty feeding and maintaining weight due to his clefts, and we have worked with his family and a local missionary to feed him up. He also had a strangulated hernia which required urgent surgery. The hernia was successfully operated on, and Louis was able to get to a healthy weight for his cleft lip and palate surgery. He is now a happy boy fully healed from the cleft lip repair.
