Keris Lakon, the Congenital Disorders Research Group, in collaboration with students, conducted a community service project in conjunction with the Department of Plastic Surgery at the Faculty of Medicine, Airlangga, and Lung Hospital on September 30, 2023. This initiative, which is part of a broader series of community service activities, received support from Smile Train Indonesia, an international charity dedicated to assisting children with cleft lips. During this event, students specializing in plastic surgery provided educational sessions for the families of affected individuals. Furthermore, a team of doctors from the joint faculties of Medicine at the University of Jember and Airlangga University performed free surgeries.

Thirteen patients from the Besuki Karisidenan area participated in this activity. The objective is to foster collaboration among the involved parties, demonstrating their commitment to partnership development. Additionally, it serves as a platform for educating students from the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Jember, enabling them to apply their knowledge in the areas of education, promotion, prevention, and curative procedures through free surgeries for the participants. This also represents a service initiative by educational institution professionals.
