Cleft Bottles Sent to Operation Smile

Late last year, we were contacted by the wonderful people at Operation Smile. They had seen the announcement that we were able to manufacture and send cleft bottles to every orphanage in China, thanks to a donation by Mead Johnson.  Specialized bottles are not readily available in China, which leads to many orphaned babies with cleft being diagnosed as failure to thrive and even sadly passing away.  For years, charities have been hand-carrying these bottles into China to help vulnerable babies born with cleft who are unable to suck.   The person who contacted us asked if it would be possible for them to receive these bottles as well for the surgery missions they do in China.

We gladly sent two cases of bottles to them before their surgical trip to Inner Mongolia. Read more.
