We help wherever skin is needed.

Care for Skin is a non-profit organization created to support people who suffer from skin loss due to accidents, tumors, burns, scars or genetic abnormalities. Our goal is to restore facial and body appearance to those who could not otherwise afford these types of surgeries.

 
 

THE PROBLEM

Burn wounds are a significant cause of disease, disfigurement, psychological trauma and even death among children. Cleft lip and palate impair speech and ability to eat and carry social stigma and shame. Scar tissue, can inhibit young children from performing the most simple of tasks.

IMPACT OF A BURN

An estimated 11 million people worldwide suffer severe burns each year. Of these injuries, 95% occur in developing countries.

Those suffering serious burn injuries in the developing world frequently lack the resources to seek proper medical treatment. 

When left untreated, burn scars can create lifelong disfigurement and disability. Basic functions such as walking, writing and carrying children can become difficult or impossible.


CHANGING A LIFE

Cleft lip and palate can cause difficulty eating and drinking, resulting in malnutrition. Combined with increased risk of infection, this can result in early death.

Delayed and impaired speech resulting from clefts make communication difficult. Worse still, cultural beliefs may cause shame, stigma, and isolation for both child and family.

While severity of a cleft can vary, the surgery needed for repair can be as low as $250 to $450 and can be performed in as little as 45 minutes. 

OUR MISSION


We work to improve lives through surgery & skin replacement.


 

Founded in 2011, The Care for Skin Foundation is a non-profit organization created to support people who have suffered loss of skin due to accidents, tumors, burns, scars or genetic abnormalities. The goal of our organization is to restore normal facial and body appearance with plastic and reconstructive techniques to those who could not otherwise afford these types of surgeries. We help wherever skin is needed in the form of skin transplantations, scar corrections, contraction releases and other plastic surgical techniques.

 

OUR PARTNERS

Our mission is to help those with loss of skin due to accidents, tumors, burns, scars or genetic abnormalities who do not have the access to or financial means to pay for reconstructive surgery. Partnering with like-minded individuals & organizations allows us to create the most impact.
