You are cordially invited to join a fund raising dinner for the Palestinian Cleft Society sponsored by the Furlow Fund at the UNC Medical Foundation. The Palestinian Cleft Society was founded in 2007 to provide free care for Palestinian children with cleft lip and palate, and other congenital craniofacial anomalies. The Cleft Society is made up of Palestinian surgeons, speech therapists, dentists, orthodontists, geneticists, and pediatricians, as well as foreign cleft practitioners who have provided support to the Palestinian practitioners. To date, the Palestinian Cleft Society, in conjunction with the Furlow Fund, has provided free surgery and services to more than 950 Palestinian children with craniofacial anomalies.

The Furlow Fund was founded in 2008 and is named after Dr. Leonard Furlow, an internationally recognized craniofacial surgeon, who trained in Plastic Surgery at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. All of the money raised will be used to provide free surgery for Palestinian children with craniofacial problems; this includes paying for surgical equipment and supplies, medicines, and feeding bottles, for the UNC-sponsored biannual surgical trips; the money will also provide resources for Palestinian practicioners to further their training.

The event will include dinner, entertainment, a silent auction, and recognition of our partners. We hope you will join us to support the Furlow Fund and PCS in providing services for Palestinian children.
