Being vast in size, China's population is by far the largest in the world. The rural-urban development divide has led to medical resource shortage and expensive medical expenses in remote areas, preventing cleft lip and palate patients from receiving early and follow-up treatments. Therefore the NCF, following Dr. Noordhoff's “Love Makes Whole” belief, integrated local Taiwanese businessmen's resources and began collaborating with ShenZhen Second Hospital in 2003, assisting with the hospital's training of medical practitioners. The NCF also assembled a team and embarked on cleft missions to local areas. This initiated the foundation's development plans for craniofacial medical collaboration projects with China. The plans are focused on training seed medical practitioners in China and allowing the people to receive medical treatments locally. The NCF successfully trained 66 seed medical practitioners and assisted 13 local interdisciplinary (including surgical, orthodontic, anesthetic, speech therapy, and other specialties) craniofacial teams from partner hospitals in providing patients with comprehensive cleft lip and palate medical services.
