PRINCE Court Medical Centre, in collaboration with Cleft Lip & Palate Association Malaysia (Clapam) and Art Market Malaysia, hosted a Charity Art Exhibition in honour of Cleft Awareness Month.

The initiative aimed to raise awareness and donations for cleft patients, raising RM14,450 with 10% of the proceeds donated to Clapam.

The exhibition featured a diverse collection of artworks including pieces by local artists, disabled artists and children.

With prices ranging from RM100 to RM8,000, there was art to suit every budget and taste.

Prince Court consultant orthodontist Col Datin Dr Mumtaj Nisah Abd Rahim (Rtd) said, “At Prince Court, we understand the profound impact cleft can have on someone’s life.

“For those born with cleft lip and palate conditions, that journey to a beautiful and confident smile is very challenging, but it’s a journey we’re privileged to be a part of.”

Visitors to the exhibition also had the opportunity to learn more about cleft awareness and support.

During the event, Art Market Malaysia and Clapam ran informative booths, providing valuable information and resources about cleft lip and palate conditions.

The event also offered engaging activities for participants such as a batik colouring session and acrylic painting class.
