CAPTION: In her cot, Valentina is at ease, watching the ponies on the mobile above her head go round and round. Life is unfortunately not so easy for her all of the time. "Hers is a complete defect", explains Dr Fomenko, referring to the cleft lip and alveolus she was born with. "When she eats something, it can get into the nose, giving her problems with breathing". LOCATION: Volzhskiy, Volgograd Oblast, Russia. INDIVIDUAL(S) PHOTOGRAPHED: Valentina Panteleeyeva.
