Charity helps Bangladesh's cleft lip patients

Group provides free surgery for children with oral defects as country lacks enough trained surgeons to meet demand.

    Every year more than 100,000 children in Bangladesh are born with cleft lips and palates.

    It only takes a simple surgery to treat them, but Bangladesh does not have enough trained surgeons to meet the demand.

    One medical charity is working to ease that pressure.
