Chatters Care for Kids (CCFK), a registered Philippine-based not-for-profit organization, is asking for monetary contributions for its latest project. CCFK is trying to raise funds to produce a song to be used for awareness campaigns for Operation Smile Philippines (OSP) and its beneficiaries- children and young adults born with cleft lip and cleft palate deformities. CCFK is an official partner-organization of OSP, an organization that provides free reconstructive facial surgeries for indigent patients born with cleft deformities. These surgeries are performed by volunteer medical professionals from the Philippines and abroad.
Operation Smile Philippines recently celebrated its 30th anniversary by organizing simultaneous medical missions around the country that changed the smiles and lives of many beneficiaries.
For the benefit of children with broken smiles (bingot/ngongo), an award-winning rapper/songwriter in the Philippines has committed to write and sing this song about the life of kids with cleft deformities. A greater awareness of their situation will lead to a better appreciation and understanding of their plight, which in turn will lead more individuals and organizations to help heal their broken smiles.
To help cover the costs in producing the song, CCFK has provided a link for anyone to help in this worthwhile project. CCFK is using Indiegogo, a crowdfunding platform, to gather contributions worldwide.
