City dad sets surgery for children with cleft palate

MABALACAT CITY – Various civic and humanitarian organizations have joined forces to conduct a medical mission for children with cleft palate defects.

Councilor Timmy Dee said that Medical Missions USA (MMFC) and Dee Hwa Liong Foundation (DHLF) will be conducting surgical operations as part of their outreach to children with medical conditions, especially cleft palate.

“We just want to spread the love and let the healing begin. This is a program where we offer a way for physically challenged children to have a better life,” said Dee in a text message.
