On 24 March 2022 Juander underwent his first surgery to repair his soft palate (read the story here) and then on the 23rd of June 2022 Blissful Cleft Foundation gave Juander his forever smile.

Dr S Naido did Juander's hard palate and lip repair at Mediclinic Southern Africa Midstream.

We would like to thank a few people who helped us to make this day a blissful one.

In no particular order:

Thank you to Dr Johannes Vlok (anaesthetist) and Dr Esna Klaassen for assisting Dr Naidoo in theatre and to the amazing nursing team in theatre and in the Paediatric ward.

Thank you to GROOTfm 90.5 for your contribution and for making this journey so special (read more about the announcement here).

Thank you Magies vol Liefde / Tummies full of Love for the box filled with goodies and the food you supplied for Juander's recovery.


Thank you to the Mediclinic Midstream team for all your help and support.

We are SO grateful.

Here’s a few photos taken on this special day.
