Summary

This project will provide training to enhance burn rehabilitation skills of professionals like therapists and social workers from low-middle income countries, either through trainings held in their own country, or through internships held at Sunshine Foundation in Taiwan. By building the skills and knowledge of burn professionals, we ensure that burn survivors can receive better care locally, and regain their physical functions, self-confidence and ability to live independently.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

A huge number of burns occur in low-middle income countries, affecting the poorest and most vulnerable segments of the population - children and women. Burn care in these countries is limited and rehabilitation services are often underdeveloped due to a lack of resources. Absence of proper physical and psychosocial rehabilitation results in disabling deformities and unaddressed emotional distress, which in turn lead to social exclusion. Building and improving rehabilitation services is crucial.

How will this project solve this problem?

Skilled and knowledgeable burn rehabilitation professionals can help improve services for burn survivors. Sunshine Foundation helps like-minded organizations in other countries by training burn rehabilitation professionals during workshops and trainings held in our partners' country, or during internships held in Taiwan. Training maximizes impact: One burn professional trained can then apply new skills to improve the physical and psychosocial outcome of many burn survivors.

Potential Long Term Impact

Training directly benefits burn professionals and their organization: Staff gains skills and knowledge, their confidence increases, they provide more effective care, their motivation and the satisfaction they get from work is enhanced. Overall, burn rehabilitation services of the organization are improved. Training eventually benefits burn survivors: Through better care, complications from burns are reduced, burn survivors have a better chance of living a full, active, and independent life.
