Abstract

Il Woong Cleft lip and palate foundation was founded in 1968 by Professor emeritus Byoung-Il Min. Since then the foundation has operated numerous cleft lip and palate patients not only in Korea but also in under-developed countries such as Vietnam, China, and Cambodia. In December 2005, the foundation was allowed as an incorporated association by Ministry of Foreign affairs and Trade, so that it could have official status. From March 6th 2009 to March 14th 2009, we conductp,d charity cleft lip and palate operations of 23 patients in areas of Deozhou, China. Hereby we present the results of operations.
