facing africa NOMA

This little-known British charity (registered number 1072505) funds and organises teams of volunteer surgeons, anaesthetists, doctors and nurses who visit Ethiopia 2-3 times each year on surgical missions to operate on children who have survived the ravages of Noma.

Noma (cancrum oris) is an acute and ravaging gangrenous infection affecting the face. The victims of Noma are mainly children under the age of 6, caught in a vicious circle of extreme poverty and chronic malnutrition and it is sadly particularly prevalent in the sub-Sahara region we will race through.

Each surgical team achieves 50-55 facial reconstructions in just two weeks!

Imagine giving some of the poorest people on earth a chance of a new face and a new life for as little as £800?
