Children with a clefts lip or palate can suffer from feeding issues, hearing problems, frequent infections and speech problems. These physical deformities tend to elicit responses from others, which can result in low self-esteem, social anxiety and discrimination. The surgery required to address these facial deformities however, is not affordable for hundreds of families from rural communities in Myanmar and Bangladesh. The CLIPP project is about setting up reconstructive surgery for congenital facial deformities and organize teaching sessions to caregivers about infection control and post-operative care.

MERCY Malaysia is a non-profit organisation focusing on providing medical relief, sustainable healthrelated development and risk reduction activities for vulnerable communities in both crisis and non-crisis situations. MERCY Malaysia recognises the value of working with partners and volunteers as well as providing opportunities for individuals to serve with professionalism. We uphold the Code of Conduct for the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement and NGOs in Disaster Relief and hold ourselves accountable to our donors and beneficiaries. As a non-profit organisation, MERCY Malaysia relies solely on funding and donations from organisations and generous individuals to continue our services to provide humanitarian assistance to our beneficiaries.
