There is a gaze in Reyhan's eyes, he still did not understand what is going on with him. This 3-year-old child has a cleft lip since birth. Reyhan suffered a lip gap and bilateral auctioning, so he had a gap in the right and left sides of his lips and auction. Not only that, his head is also has abnormal size. The doctor diagnosed Reyhan as suffering from hydrocephalus. Hydrocephalus is a condition where there is a collection of fluid in the cavity in the brain. The excessive amount of fluid can make the cavity in the brain grow bigger and suppress the surrounding brain tissue. As a result, brain and other nerve tissue can be damaged and experience interference with its function.
For handling lip loopholes and auctioning, early handling is needed, according to the stages of growth and development, multi and interdisciplinary, as well as continuous. Not only surgery to improve the structure, patients with lips and cleft palate also need other treatments such as eating, speech and dental therapy by medical personnel.
Currently, Reyhan needs a Constructive plate fixed tool to fix the gap in his lips and auctioning so that he can close the cleft gap. The costs needed include installation of equipment, laboratory checks and routine controls. In total, the cost can reach 6 million rupiah. The cost for installing the equipment was not covered by the insurance, so Reyhan's parents had to find a way themselves. Reyhan's father is a security guard and his mother takes care of the household everyday. Their total income is not enough to pay for the installation of these tools, even though the needs are quite urgent.
Let's help Reyhan!
