Cleft lip children with or without cleft palate may face various challenges, depending on the type and severity of the cleft. Speech difficulties is one of that.

Velopharyngeal insufficiency (VPI) often occurs to children born with cleft palate with or without cleft lip. Due to the failure of velopharyngeal closure which leaves the opening between the soft palate and the back wall of the throat during speech. The two main speech symptoms of VPI are hypernasality and nasal air emission.

My Heart is with You Forever

Dr. Noordhoff , founder of Noordhoff Craniofacial Foundation, first came to Taiwan in 1959 as a missionary doctor. At that time Dr. Noordhoff spotted many Taiwanese children born with cleft lips and palates sometime being looked down upon, he then decided to commit himself to helping these children. In 1990, Dr. Noordhoff donated his retirement pension and found Noordhoff Craniofacial Foundation.

Nothing Is Impossible to NCF

Last NCF Christmas Campaign “Make A Wish” was a big success.

NCF and SOGO Department Store cooperated to grant the Christmas Wishes of these 100 cleft children and most of them are from the lowly socially poor families. SOGO Department Store is responsible for promoting and invites 100 donors to grant these wishes.

Change Starts from Within

▲Children learn about the importance of individual efforts in terms of teamwork, as cooperative games help them learn how individual efforts unite to help the team accomplish goals.
