Happy early #FathersDay ! Meet Shan and his son, San. Read more about their story below. . Shan and his wife Am Swe live in a remote and isolated area of Myanmar. The couple works long and difficult hours on a rubber plantation, yet earn the combined local equivalent of $230 annually. . In 2012, Shan and Am Swe were surprised that their first child San had been born with a cleft lip, but they fell in love with him immediately. Although the family was unaware that cleft surgery was possible, they agreed they would give him all the extra love and care possible in hopes that he could live a happy life. . San was a happy kid at home, especially when spending time with his father, but, after years of rejection from his peers who mistakenly believed that the cleft lip was communicable, San started becoming reclusive and downtrodden. Fearing that his son would lose his gentle spirit and smile forever, Shan prayed for a miracle every day. . Shan’s miracle came by the way of Sunny, a volunteer with Northern Women’s Development Foundation, who was visiting the remote region and distributing information about free cleft surgeries at the military hospital in Shan State sponsored by Smile Train. Upon learning about this incredible opportunity, Shan and San took off for the two-day journey to a new smile. . After San cleared his medical evaluation, he received his Smile Train sponsored cleft surgery. The first person he saw when he woke up was his father. Before leaving, Shan said, “Thank you, Smile Train. My son has a beautiful #smile !”
