Summary

Please help Saving Faces. Our world-leading Research and Education programmes drive essential physical and psychological treatments for victims of facial injuries and diseases.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Imagine if your face stopped looking like you. Imagine friends and strangers averting their eyes, embarrased, because of the way you look. In the UK alone, nearly 5000 individuals develop disfuguiring oral cancers each year. 1700 of them died last year. They were young, old, rich and poor - people like you. Around 125,000 young drinkers also sustained serious face injuries last year, with 15,000 receiving surgery to repair dangerously disfiguring wounds.

How will this project solve this problem?

Saving Faces Research programmes intend to improve the lives of many millions of face disfigurement victims worldwide. Our Prevention Education aimed at teenage binge drinkers and smokers is already having a major impact. But we need more funds.

Potential Long Term Impact

Millions of oral cancer victims will have essential tailored, physical and psychological support.Young people will understand that binge drinking and smoking can result in face disfigurement. With your help, Saving Faces will save and improve lives.
