    Global ENT Outreach prevents avoidable deafness and death from ear disease in the developing world.

    With your help, we can help the world hear again

    We are a non-profit organisation committed to creating sustainable improvements to the medical and surgical care of people with ear disease worldwide. We do this by training local doctors to provide high quality medical and surgical care to their patients.

    Of Ethiopia’s 104 million inhabitants, almost 80% live in rural communities and have poor access to health care, including Ear, Nose & Throat surgery. Currently, there are 23 fully-trained ENT doctors (a ratio of 1: 4.5 million). In contrast, the UK has approximately one ENT surgeon per 100 000 population.

    We have an active outreach mission at the Ayder Referral Hospital in Mekelle, Northern Ethiopia. Training ear surgeons requires specialist equipment and dissection laboratories. Our aim is to build the first temporal bone laboratory in the region, which is essential to train local surgeons to treat ear disease. To do this, we need your help to fund equipment (microscopes, drills, surgical instruments) and transport to Mekelle.

    Every penny you donate goes to improving the care of patients with ear disease in Ethiopia.

      We’re over £1000! Thanks so much to everyone for their generosity! We can now freight the microscopes and drills to Ethiopia! Only a little more and we will have enough to finish the lab in time for this year’s missions.

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
