A government hospital will host the campaign with out of town specialists invited to attend as an effort to network and share techniques. This model has proved successful with 5 – 15 patients receiving cleft interventions. Such campaigns have been conducted at Hospital Kuala Lumpur, Hospital Sg Buloh, Hospital Melaka, Hospital Telok Intan, Hospital Tawau, Hospital Umum Sarawak, Hospital Wanita/Kanak-kanak Likas Sabah.
