Ayu and Ade

Ayu and her father, Ade, lived with untreated clefts in a remote village in West Java, Indonesia. The family struggled to get by — Ade's cleft made work hard to come by, and the constant ridicule Ayu endured from her classmates made her want to drop out of school. Then the Indonesian Army, in partnership with Smile Train, stepped in to change their lives forever.
