Guwahati Comprehensive Cleft Care Centre (GC4)
Mission Smile has created a Unique Public Private Partnerships in collaboration with the Government of Assam and National Health Mission towards creating a ‘Cleft Free’ Assam.
Our Guwahati Comprehensive Cleft Care Centre is a state-of-the-art facility which was inaugurated in February 2011 by then Hon’ble Chief Minister of Assam, Shri. Tarun Gogoi, in the presence of the Hon’ble Ex- Minister for Health and Family Welfare, Dr. Hemanta Biswa Sarma and Shri Ranjit Barthakur (Chairman Mission Smile).
Mission Smile undertakes medical missions throughout India and North East to identify needy cleft children for corrective surgeries. Special screening camps are organized to select cleft children for these life-altering surgeries. We also provide free dental care and speech therapy for patients who need teeth alignment along with free nutritional care for children suffering from nutrition deficiency.
Since 2011, more than 22,000 safe corrective surgeries have been conducted by the centre. It has become a centre of excellence in Comprehensive Cleft Care not only in India but also in the world.
Over the time, PSUs like IOCL, OIL India, ONGC, NEEPCO, NHPC have supported this initiative of the government. It has been acclaimed by Shri. Ghulam Nabi Azad, Ex- Health Minister, Government of India as a model to be replicated by other states too.
