MEDICAL SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM
A warm smile is the universal language of kindness
ANZA has been giving the gift of a smile to babies and children with cranio-facial deformities since 1997. In Indonesia, one in every 600 babies born has a cleft lip or cleft palate. This can be easily fixed with surgery, but the cost is beyond the reach of many poor Indonesian families.
Our ANZA Medical Sponsorship Program (MSP) was set up to help fund cranio-facial surgery for children. Our main focus has been cleft lip and palate operations, but we also help fund more complicated surgery and follow-up operations.
Our program operates in partnership with the charitable foundations (yayasans) Citra Baru and Sayap Ibu Bintaro. These yayasans assess patients for surgery, support them through the process, and contact organisations such as ANZA to find a sponsor for each child. ANZA, Citra Baru and Sayap Ibu Bintaro work together to give children a chance to lead a normal life.
