Create & disseminate educational materials on burn care

These include information on the effects of acid on the body, emergency actions, recognizing infection, family care of survivors, what to expect in the recovery process, and nutrition.

Connect survivors with medical professionals

We build relationships with healthcare providers and surgeons who work in geographic areas close to survivors so that survivors have broader options for reconstructive and cosmetic surgeries. We are also developing medical teams that will travel to countries to provide surgeries and training in advanced burn care techniques.
