This Blog serves as two things: a photo-diary of our lives between 2007 and mid 2011, when we saw some incredible things and met some amazing people; and a reflection of our more normal lives since then.

Cleft kids

Often, we see children (or adults) with big white whiskers walking around the ship. They are our cleft-lip patients, who have just had reconstructive surgery to repair their clefts. I am constantly amazed that their faces don't require more bandages and dressings after such a big operation. They usually stay on the ship for only a couple of days after their surgery before returning home. Olly
