One in six hundred babies in Israel are born with a cleft lip and palate. From early infancy, the long journey begins to properly repair the cleft and tackle all the complications that accompany a cleft lip and palate. 

Feeding a newborn with a cleft is one of the greatest challenges mothers will face. Due to the opening in the roof of the mouth, it is very difficult to properly feed the child. Feeding must be done with the aid of specialty bottles and equipment which are not available in Israel. 

Sadly, children born with cleft lip and palate are hospitalized and fed by a gastric feeding tube because the correct feeding equipment is not available to them. Aside from the emotional and physical stress that the mother endures with this new challenge, she faces additional stress and needless hospitalization of her new born due to lack of proper equipment.

Sfat Halev, a project dedicated to help mothers and their children suffering from cleft lip and palate, has been providing such feeding equipment free of charge. 

Sfat Halev is committed to provide each baby born with a cleft lip and palate with the proper feeding equipment so that they too can have the opportunity to develop as any other child. 

A Sfat Halev volunteer will show up bedside within two hours of birth to provide the new mom with a care package that includes the specialty feeding equipment. This is made possible by the 34 volunteers scattered over 7 Sfat Halev centers across Israel.

In 2016, Sfat Halev distributed 241 care packages. We ask for your help so we’re able to continue providing feeding equipment for these precious babies.

The cost of each care package, including the specialty feeding bottles, is $100. Help us help them. Help us nourish them. Let them grow and thrive.
