In rural Ethiopia many people living with facial deformities - be it cleft lip and palate, animal attack injuries or large tumours - are unable to access medical support. This can result in them becoming marginalised from their own communities. The result of this is that people suffering from a facial disfigurement may be denied education, the opportunity to marry or even to get a job and earn a living. In a country where community is so important, being stigmatised for the way you look can be hugely detrimental to your way of life.
Project Harar exists to ensure that as many people as possible living in rural Ethiopia do get access to that treatment and are not denied much of what we take for granted. Our year round programme supports predominantly children (84% of our surgeries are on children) who otherwise would not be able to receive these medical operations either from lack of funding or lack of knowledge that these surgeries are available.
To help those with facial disfigurements we currently work in to ways. Read more about our Cleft Programme and Complex Surgical Mission here
