If you would like to help raise money for Facing Africa we would of course be delighted and very grateful.

You may like to consider any one of the many fund-raising opportunities that exist from holding a coffee morning, sponsoring a Marathon des Sables competitor (the registration fee is around £3,500 per person), asking your local church to donate a collection, competing in a local fun-run (mini-marathon) or simply asking your friends for donations. A gift, large or small, can and will make a lasting difference to a Noma victim’s quality of life.

Standing orders and legacies:- needless to say, a small regular donation made by standing order from your bank enables us to plan ahead. If you would like to receive a bank standing order form, please contact Yzanne Martin Hallett. Should you consider leaving a legacy to Facing Africa, Facing Africa will ensure that your kindness and generosity will make a huge difference to one or many of the tragic Noma victims in Africa. If you need more information about the work we do, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Each surgical team mission, made up of 15 – 20 volunteers costs around £ 75,000

If you would like any further information about fundraising ideas or anything to do with Facing Africa, please contact Chris Lawrence chris@facingafrica.org or Yzanne Martin Hallett at yzanne@facingafrica.org.

Facing Africa are members of the FRSB, The Fundraising Standards Board. To find out more, please visit www.frsb.org.uk

Children can be very cruel. They are particularly cruel to other children, not many adults, because the consequences are usually slight. Without a theory of mind they are blind to the feelings aroused in others. Main reason why our children patients drop out of school is because they are being teased constantly by their peers. The surgery Amlakalgne had in October 2016 makes such a big change to her face and to her life: she will not be bullied anymore. ... See MoreSee Less

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. Many mistakes were made in the 80s, both by the Western and by the Ethiopian Government. The West was criticized for not reacting to the crisis in time; the Ethiopian Government for its spending on civil war. After more than 20 years Facing Africa could put things right. We reconstructed Derebew's face and gave him his dignity back. Feels like justice. Picture: Derebew before and after his surgery in October 2016. ... See MoreSee Less
