Cleft Lip and Palate Awareness Week 2021: Celebrating Difference
8th – 16th May
When we share what makes us unique with others, the world becomes a better, more interesting place. Cleft Lip and Palate Awareness Week is about celebrating differences, not only in how we look and sound, but also in the experiences that make us who we are. Every smile tells a story. This May, join us in busting myths and raising awareness by sharing what cleft means to you.
CLAPA Patron Carol Vorderman
To kick things off, CLAPA Patron Carol Vorderman talks about her brother who was born with a cleft lip and palate, and why she thinks it’s so important for people in the cleft community to get involved and share their stories.
