In 2013, Cleft New Zealand held New Zealand’s first ever awareness day for cleft lip and palate – New Zealand’s most common condition not able to be fixed in a single procedure, yet is still one of the least talked about conditions.
Awareness Day in 2013 was a success with events held in Auckland, Tauranga, Napier and Christchurch. In 2014, we want to repeat that effort, all around the country with BBQs and awareness spanning the nation.
Cleft New Zealand’s team have now set the date for 2014 Cleft Awareness Day.
2014 Cleft Awareness Day is Saturday 8 November-Sunday 9 November 2014.
Want to do something cool and a bit different for 2014 Cleft Awareness Day? We love hearing new ideas. Please get in touch and let us know what you’d like to do, and what we can do to help it become a reality.
