Story

Thank you for supporting our Volunteer Medics to join the Project Harar surgical mission to Ethiopia in February 2020. We are volunteering two weeks of our annual leave, some of us more, to be part of a medical team which will treat and care for some of the vulnerable children, men and women in Ethiopia with severe facial disfigurements.

Project Harar believes that no one should feel alone because of the way they look. That's why we provide treatment for patients with facial disfigurements from some of the most remote areas of rural Ethiopia.

Facial disfigurements can disproportionately affect the poorest people due to the lack of availability of treatment in rural areas, the cost of accessing treatment and lack of knowledge of what treatment is available. This is exacerbated by malnutrition, poor oral hygiene practices, and overall poor health. Those with facial disfigurements find it difficult to perform the functions that most of us take for granted eating breathing or talking and they also face great stigma and discrimination. Without the support of Project Harar, their future will be bleak. They will live isolated lives, often hidden from sight and neglected, unable to attend school, earn a living or get married. Most will become malnourished and many will die prematurely.

Throughout the year, our outreach team proactively engages with local communities to find some of the most isolated individuals with severe facial disfigurements who are then treated during our complex surgical mission.

Your support will help us provide life-changing surgery for some of the most marginalised people with facial disfigurements.

Together we can transform lives. Support our campaign or set up your own fundraiser.

About the charity

Project Harar Ethiopia

Project Harar provides access to treatment, rehabilitation, and reintegration services in Ethiopia for children and young people with facial deformities. We do this because these children and young people are at risk of stunting, malnutrition, and social exclusion.
