Deleth is a nine-month old boy who lives with his mother, father and twin sister in Cusco.
Both Deluth and his sister were born with a cleft lip and palate.
It was very difficult for the young parents when their baby twins were born, both with cleft lips and palates. The mother believes something happened during her pregnancy that many have caused the children to be born with cleft lip and palate.
Deleth received a surgery for his cleft lip and is a beautiful little boy His sister, already had been operated on for her lip but was too small for her palate surgery this time. When we return in November, she will receive her palate surgery from the Smile Network team.
Deleuth and his entire family touched the hearts of the entire team. We look forward to seeing them back when we return for our next mission in November
