Summary

60% of the burnt victims around the globe are less than 6 years old. One of the main causes such as hot liquids is the case of Ruth, Jack, Lucas and Griss whilst in the case of Jefrey, Italo and Niko is fire. The consequences these burn lesiones leave take up to 3 years to recover. 5 of these 7 children must travel a 30-hour trip from the outskirts of Lima and rural areas to receive their therapy sessions in ANIQUEM.

Challenge

The victims' families are usually questioned and stereotyped as being poor caregivers because of the childrens' appearance and low self-esteem. Additionally as these families have a low income and treatment is expensive they tend to terminate treatment, which produces the worsening of sequels and abandonment of his/her life's project, which makes them an economic load for their family and community.

Solution

To provide a free-of-charge and accessible integral rehabilitation to allow physical and psychological development of the burnt children to be able to continue their path of life. ANIQUEM is the mean which provides this help as well as the confection of compressive dressing, splints and silicone masks.

Long-Term Impact

This project will help 7 children and together through the journey of recovery , empower them to reinsert themselves into their day-to-day life, school-life and future work-life even with the presence of discrimination. Your support will help save a life!
