Karianne Wilhelmsen Fjære

Founder, chairwoman and cashier of Care4Burn

Project leader pharmacist, Capital Region Pharmacy

I have 10 years of broad working experience from the health care sector in Tanzania and Denmark within patient safety, quality assurance and project management. In 2017 I formally established Care4Burn after working with children with burn injuries in Tanzania since 2008. I believe that education is the key to sustainable treatment of burn injuries. Knowing what tragic consequences untreated burn injuries can cause, it is crucial to strengthen and develop local competencies, ensuring ownership and long-term commitment to the treatment.

Anja Bergmann Stubager

Vice Chairwoman since 2017

Nurse anesthetist, orthopedic surgery, Rigshospitalet

Through my work in Denmark and Africa I have experienced the consequences of burn injuries in patients both in the acute phase as well as in the long-term course, where there is a need for many surgical interventions. Especially in Africa, I have anesthetized many young children, who several times a week needs to have their burns cleaned in the operating room. With our work in Care4Burn we can contribute in training local doctors and nurses within burn wound care, thereby passing on the experience and playing a part in reaching sustainable treatment for Africa’s burn injured children.

Caroline Lundegaard

Active since 2018

Master degree student, pharmacy

On a daily basis, I am a master degree student at Statens Serum’s institute and I am currently working on a project in vaccine research. Once I have my degree, I am interested in a career within disease control. I was introduced to Care4Burn when I met Forough Faghih, during my internship at the Capital Region of Denmark’s Pharmacy at Rigshospitalet. When I heard about the organization and this forgotten patient group, I really wanted to contribute, and now I help seek funds and grants.

Rikke Holck Hansen

Active since 2018

Master degree student, pharmacy

I study pharmacy at the University of Copenhagen and will graduate as a pharmacist in March 2021. Until I became acquainted with Care4Burn, I did not know the extent of burn injured patients. In Care4Burn we have the opportunity to make a difference in the treatment of burns. I look forward to focus on this patient group with my work at Care4Burn.
