Karianne Wilhelmsen Fjære

Founder and chairwoman 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 and cashier 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.

Helen Færch Klingemann

Board member since 2022

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 want with my focus to help us expand over time for the benefit of even more children across both Africa and Asia.
