Transformation of Ashwini

Ashwini born to a poor family in a village near Doddaballapura, India. The birth of a girl child is an auspicious event in most Indian households, but when Ashwani was born, it became a moment of shock and disbelief.

Ashwani's family had never seen a child with a cleft before. Ashwani's cleft lip and palate seemed like a curse and the family worried about the future of their daughter.

The family feared that they would be ostracized by their family members and villagers. So they decided to keep Ashwani's hidden from all eyes. Her father wanted to abandon his daughter because of the facial disfigurement.

Then a NRHM doctor at the Government hospital informed the family that Ashwani's clefts were correctable and she could have a free surgery at Trinity Care Foundation partner hospital, Mallige Medical Centre. Surgery for her cleft lip was complete successes and the family along with the father learned to accept and love their only daughter.

In the coming days, Ashwani's cleft palate surgeries will be performed and this will transform her life. Prof. Dr. N Srinath is the chief consultant surgeon for Trinity Care Foundation.
