McGann Ratner Foundation

The McGann Ratner Foundation was formed with a dual-mission:

– To eradicate craniofacial deficiency and cleft palate disorder in Sumatra, Indonesia,

– To train local doctors to provide the surgeries that will transform hundreds of lives in their communities.

The surgical team, led by Dr. Ratner, travels to Sumatra twice a year to provide free surgeries to children and teenagers in need of cleft palate correction.McGann Foundation
