ABOUT US

Akila Bharatha Mahila Seva Samaja (ABMSS) was set up in the year 1993 in Bangalore to promote the social causes of child and people welfare. Over the years, the organization has morphed from a catalyst, supporter, Promoter, and sponsor for many causes.Since 2013, the organization went on to add the cleft lip and palate treatment as one of its major programmes under the generous support of Deutsche Cleft Kinderhilfe e.V., Germany and many other local donors in India. It started with just two projects in Coorg and Mysore and has now grown into a pan India presence.Apart from cleft lip and palate, the organization also supports awareness work in rural areas; education of doctors and medical personnel involved in supporting the charitable cause; speech and my-functional therapy; and supplementing with vitamin and minerals to pregnant people and malnourished children.

OUR VISION

Every child born with a deformity has the right to a dignified life and should be given a second chance at life

OUR MISSION

To provide children born with deformities the access to safe, well timed and quality surgery.
