Challenge

In Ethiopia,currently a plastic surgery not available in an adequated way. And also 1/3of the people of Ethiopia currently live at or below the poverty line, many Ethiopians with deformities have no access to the reconstructive surgery they need to lead healthy, normal lives.(EHMR)rep, These young people often find themselves unable to work and confined to living inside their home due to the stigma of deformity. Without income, those who don't have supportive families often end up on the street.

Solution

The Haddis Agape Foundation will meet these challenges by sending skilled European surgeons on surgical missions to Ethiopia. During these missions, the surgeons will teach local surgeons the skills and knowledge required to successfully complete complex reconstructive surgical procedures. The long-term goal is that local healthcare providers will be able to take over and provide sustainable solutions to the people of Ethiopia.
