Cleft Kids New Zealand (formerly Cleft Kidz NZ) was Kenny’s first not-for-profit organisation established in September 2005. It was designed as a support service for young people affected by cleft lip and palate in NZ and around the world.
The brand continued to grow until 2010 when Cleft Kids New Zealand was merged with Cleft Lip and Palate Support Group Incorporated to form the new Cleft New Zealand. At that point in time, the Cleft Kids New Zealand brand was loaned to Cleft New Zealand and subsequently retired.
The retired brand continued to operate a website since 2010 which was not updated, but was available for people’s information only. With that website facing closure, it was today returned to KennyArdouin.com where it will continue to operate in a static state at its new home cleftkidslegacy.kennyardouin.com until at least the end of 2014.
Please note, that aside from the website, the Cleft Kids New Zealand brand and organisation is now retired, and all New Zealand based cleft support should now be sought from Cleft New Zealand.
