Facing Africa

Facing Africa funds teams of volunteer surgeons to perform complex facial reconstructive surgery on the victims of the disease Noma, a ravaging gangrenous infection affecting the face. Sufferers are mainly young children, caught in a vicious circle of extreme poverty and chronic malnutrition.

Charity Registration No. 1129170

Story

Later this year I will be joining the 'Facing Africa' team in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, to volunteer for 8 weeks as a junior doctor. The charity will be funding a team of surgeons and anaesthetists who perform life-changing facial reconstruction surgery for people, mainly children, who have suffered from the disease 'noma' and other causes of facial deformity.

To allow these incredible missions to continue, I would really appreciate your donation to the Facing Africa charity, so that they can continue their work. Money raised will go towards supporting surgical missions in Ethiopia (flights/ accommodation for nurses, surgeons and aneasthetists) and providing the medical equipment required.

Thank-you!!
