The Funbarr Challenge was initially a concept to raise a small amount of money for a very personal charity , it has grown into a global event raising far more than we had ever envisaged. All the money raised goes towards CLAPAI so they can provide adequate support and awareness for children born with cleft lip and palates.

CLAPAI seeks to provide support through talking to new parents and providing advice on feeding, and ongoing medical care throughout the treatment. Most of the people active on the CLAPAI committee are parents themselves, and thus are in a position to give a valuable perspective, practical advice and support. To this end we supply an information booklet to parents and maternity hospitals. The Cleft Lip & Palate Association of Ireland (CLAPAI), registered charity, is a voluntary group formed to provide support and information for parents of children affected by cleft lip and palate and those directly affected by the condition. It is a Company limited by guarantee and has been granted charity status* by the Revenue Commissioners.
CLAPAI has also been active in fund-raising in order to aid hospitals and clinics in the purchase of new equipment, and has assisted in sending medical professionals to conferences abroad.
Our Association is staffed by unpaid volunteers who are primarily parents of cleft infants, and all the funds of the Association are directed to achieving our objectives.
