This initiative was the brainchild of AHEAD Board of Director, Dr. Deborah Tuzo, DDS, MPH, who in 2006, decided she wanted to bring more smiles to the children of Tanzania and their families.

A renowned orthodontic surgeon and public health expert, Dr. Tuzo developed a partnership between these three entities to establish this life enhancing program which identifies children and young adults in need a facial reconstructive surgery to correct the disfigurement caused by congenital cleft palates and cleft lips (as well as other structurally disfiguring and dental maladies). AHEAD recognizes that cleft palates and lips are a major problem in Tanzania. Children suffering from this problem face difficult lives; they are malnourished because they can not eat, they are at high risk for infection, and are often rejected, socially ostracized, and unable to find work.
With the surgical expertise of Project Change founder, Dr. Chris Johnson-Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Tuzo, and their team of professionals, and the staff at CCBRT, AHEAD has established a mechanism where the patients, their families and the AHEAD health professionals partner together to make this a seemless and successful surgical journey for all involved.

In 2007, Dr. Deborah Tuzo, Orthodontic Surgeon and Coordinator of AHEAD-Bermuda established a partnership between these three entities to establish this life enhancing program which identifies patients in need a facial reconstructive surgery to correct the disfigurement caused by congenital cleft palates and cleft lips. With this construct, we have established a mechanism where the patients and their families could be brought to Dar es Salam from remote villages under the sponsorship of AHEAD, to undergoing this dramatic and necessary surgical intervention. Dr. Tuzo has found this partnership to be "an extraordinary experience, where by working together, we are able to witness firsthand, the dramatic improvements that our work accomplishes in the lives of these patients and their families. She recognizes that the team approach and partnership between AHEAD and the magnificent doctors and nurses at the CCBRT made our program a profound success.

In 2008, AHEAD was able to significantly expand this program to the repair of 20 cleft palates and lips, in addition to the repair of multiple skin wounds and the resection of multiple tumors. One beneficiary of the wonderful work of Drs. Johnson, Tuzo and our partners at CCBRT, is Paulo Julius, a brave 12 year old youth, who notes profound satisfaction and appreciation for the generosity and expertise that was afforded him.
...
Dr. Tuzo appreciates that, "commitment and mutual cooperation is vital to the sustenance to any long term program, and AHEAD believes our investment and delivery of these programs insures healthy productive citizens and future leaders.
