Creating Smiles for Africa: Adamma’s Story
Adamma was born in the town of eThekweni near Durban North, South Africa.
Her name means beautiful child, but Adamma does not feel beautiful…
Life is a journey, rougher for some than others. This is especially true of children who, like Adamma, have a cleft lip, nose, and/or palate. But there is hope. Clinics like the Wentworth Foundation and people like Dr. Sikki and his team are working to help these children feel like everyone else by giving them back their smiles. A portion of the sales of this book will be donated to the Wentworth Foundation to help fund their excellent work.
Adamma was born with a cleft lip and palate. This means she has a slit in her lip that everyone can see. Adamma is bullied, and no one wants to be friends with her because of the way she looks. Some of the people in her village are even afraid of her! All Adama wants is to be like the other children, and she finally gets that chance when she is referred to Dr. Sikki at the Wentworth Foundation Clinic in Durban North, South Africa.
Join Adamma on her adventure from eThekweni, South Africa to meet Dr. Sikki where her dream of having a beautiful smile will come true.
