African Themed Evening in aid of Facing Africa Saturday 22nd October 2016 at 6.30pm

Sue Criswick and Melanie Vojak are hosting an African Themed Evening in aid of Facing Africa. Twice a year, Facing Africa funds a surgical team to treat sufferers of a disease known as Noma which destroys bone and muscle in the face. The few survivors of this condition are left with terrible facial disfigurements and limited ability to eat and speak. Sue has been to Ethiopia on two recent surgical missions to supervise wound care.

We would like to invite you, with your friends and family, to this evening of African inspired dinner and entertainment to raise funds for this amazing small charity.

During the great Ethiopian famine in the 80's Derebew was a toddler in South Wollo. His family as many others starved. Derebew survived the famine but his face was eaten away by NOMA, a disease that is triggered by severe malnutrition.
