Patientsupport for Queen Mghamba 6 years old

6-year-old Queen Mghamba suffered from burn injuries on 38% of her body when her clothes caught fire while she was playing near the family’s cooking fire. Unfortunately, this is a classic accident in Africa and other 3rd world countries, where cooking often takes place on the ground and over an open fire. Queen Mghamba has so far received four skin transplants, and continues her treatment with support from Care4Burn.

Together we can make a difference 🙏❤️

General Assembly 2022

INVITATION TO CARE4BURN GENERAL ASSEMBLY

In Care4Burn, we are dedicated to help children and young people with burn injuries in Tanzania. Through sponsorships and fundraising, we continuously ensure the purchase of relevant surgical equipment, training and other assistance to our African partners.

The board consists of qualified professionals in both the healthcare and marketing areas.

The need for help is great.

The problem with proper treatment of burn injuries is not just an issue in Tanzania. We therefore have greater ambitions, and a dream of growing as an organisation – both in terms of knowledge, and not least in terms of additional finances for our relief work.

Would you like to contribute? Do you have good ideas or perhaps a concrete experience in the field that you want to share?

Then attend our General Assembly 2022: THURSDAY 31ST OF MARCH AT 17.00 in ØSTERBROHUSET, Århusgade 103, Kbh Ø

Registration no later than March 25TH: Info@care4burn.org or by registering for the event here on Facebook: https://fb.me/e/3D6Gu0uCQ

Hope to see you! ❤️🙏

Patientsupport for Gloria 8 years old

Gloria, 8, got badly burned on her lower body and especially legs when she got too close to the family’s cooking fire.

With support from Care4Burn, she has had 3 skin transplants over two months, and is now recovering.

Gloria still needs two surgeries before the doctors assess that her skin and body have healed as it should, and she can play and move freely again.

We are so happy to be able to help both her and many other children – through your contribution.

Together we can make a difference.

Care4Burn arbejder for at alle brandsårspatienter kan få lige adgang til nødvendig og professionel behandling på vores samarbejdshospital Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Centre i Tanzania.

Du får mulighed for at sikre løsninger der hjælper børn med forbrændinger til et bedre liv med flere muligheder i deres fremtid. Arbejdet er frivillig og ulønnet. Vi forventer du arbejder 2-5 timer per måned, samt deltager i de månedlige Bestyrelsesmøder.
