Cleft lip and cleft palate are widespread deformities in developing countries. Although many voluntary medical expeditions focused on cleft treatment are dispatched to these countries annually, no public database providing specific details of these trips exists. Forty-eight craniofacial surgeons in twelve north-eastern states were contacted to collect information regarding their trips. Twenty-three surgeons responded, nine of whom participated in such expeditions. This information is part of a website designed to facilitate connections between afflicted patients and specialists in this field.
