PHOTOS: Smile Train Ambassadors Miss Universe Nigeria & Miss Universe Ghana Raise Cleft Week Awareness

Smile Train, the world’s largest cleft organization, held a Cleft Week in Nigeria from January 23 – 25 at partner hospital, Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital. The primary goal of the Cleft Week was to raise awareness of clefts and reduce the backlog of those living with untreated clefts throughout Nigeria.

Smile Train Ambassadors, Miss Universe Nigeria Stephanie Agbasi and Miss Universe Ghana Ruth Quashie played a vital role in helping to create awareness for the Cleft Week and had the opportunity to interact with some of Smile Train’s cleft patients and observed a life-changing cleft surgery firsthand. In addition, they participated in an in-home patient visit and met with one of Smile Train’s Goodwill Ambassadors, the First Lady of Anambra State, HE Mrs. Ebele Obiano.
