Karianne Wilhelmsen Fjære
Founder and chairwoman of Care4Burn
Project leader, clinical 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, I believe it is crucial to strengthen and develop local competencies, ensuring ownership and long-term commitment to the treatment.
Helen Færch Klingemann
Board member since 2022
Project management, Steno Diabetes Center
I have many years of experience with communication and profiling in both the social- and health sector, and I have been a volunteer in several NGOs. Care4Burn deals with a really important area, and I focus on helping us to expand over time for the benefit of even more children across both Africa and Asia.
Vice Chairman since 2023
Retired – Senior Advisor, Business Development and Tendering at Emas-AMC AS
I have been involved with Care4Burn right from the moment Karianne met Faraja at Nkoaranga hospital, and with her initial treatments and later reconstructive surgeries. In 2008 I contacted the Burn Injury Department at Haukeland Hospital in Bergen in Norway, where Dr Einar Eriksen was engaged. I have been responsible for repeated fundraising activities in Norway together with my former employer, which formed an important basis for Care4Burn. Care4Burn has now developed and cemented itself as an important humanitarian organisation within treatment of burn injured children in Tanzania and I want to contribute to the further growth of the organisation.
