All proceeds from Déjeun’aide will be directed to the H.B Craniofacial and Cleft Surgery Unit, assuring patients have the safest and most up-to-date surgical treatment.

Whether affecting the bones of the skull or face of children, The Montreal Children’s Hospital’s Craniofacial and Cleft Surgery team is dedicated to the treatment of children with craniofacial disorders.

To operate at full capacity and remain a leader in Quebec and in Canada, the H.B. Williams Craniofacial and Cleft Surgery Unit of the Montreal Children’s Hospital requires an annual budget of nearly $900,000.

Only 50% of the budget comes from government funding. The hospital relies on the generosity of the Montreal community to fill the deficit.
