Future Faces/Cranio Facial Centre , Nepal
Future Faces was set up by Mr Sunil Sah, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon
To train and support surgeons and allied professionals in order to care for people with craniofacial deformities such as cleft lip and palate, trauma, and other problems in the head and neck region. In 2017, the Craniofacial Centre was built on land attached to the Janakpur Trauma and Orthopaedic Hospital in Janakpur, Nepal, but lacked up-to-date facilities and had only a very basic operating theatre.
Identify what was required to upgrade
Having identified what was required to upgrade the operating theatre, BGF donated what was needed in order to bring the facility up to the highest possible standards. This has enabled basic but essential surgery to be performed in safe surroundings. improvements were made as a result of this upgrade, and the operating theatre is now equipped with a state-of-the-art anesthetic machine, two new operating tables (one electric and one hydraulic), piped gases, several monitors, suction, lighting, a recovery room, staff changing facilities, and scrub and sluice areas.
BGF also support by financing the salaries of two surgeons, two dentists and three nurses.
