Dedicated to establishing centers around the world to provide free surgery and on-going medical care for children with cleft lip and palate and other craniofacial abnormalities.

The Gift of a Smile Changes a Life

Noordhoff Craniofacial Foundation aims to help children and adults with craniofacial deformity receive holistic care, to sponsor research to advance the quality of medical care, and to improve public awareness and social acceptance for our patients.We firmly believe that only a team approach can provide holistic/best care to cleft patients and that only love can make whole.

Children born with cleft lip or palate in developing countries are often left untreated because their families are poor and cannot afford the surgery. Many cannot speak properly and grow up filled with shame and isolation. There is a simple $250 surgery that has been around for decades. When you donate to NCF, all of your donation goes toward the surgery and care of a child in need. You can make such a difference in the life of just one child, or many.


"Changing a child’s appearance goes far beyond patching up a hole to impact his entire life. It promotes confidence, gratitude to society, and it helps him better understand love and how to share love with others when he grows up."
