By purchasing one of our gifts you help us improve the lives of others. With your support we can bring surgical help to women who became victims of trauma and violence!
Women for Women is a charity programme supported by female plastic surgeons whose goal is to help women suffering from disfiguring or socially excluding injuries and trauma, with the goal of enabling such women to continue on to lead happy and prosperous lives despite their injuries and trauma they have suffered in the past.
The programme was developed by the Secretary General of IPRAS, the International Society for Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Marita Eisenmann-Klein, MD and the Chairperson of Quality Assurance of IPRAF, the International Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery Foundation, Constance Neuhann-Lorenz, MD.
Women for Women’s first mission was conducted 2008 in Jalandhar, Punjab/North India, followed by numerous further missions in India (Kulu, Palampur, Lucknow, Vijayawada), Bangladesh and Kenya. In all missions in India, women with mostly burn injuries were operated on by Women for Women’s experienced surgical teams.
Further projects in Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Iraq and Kenya are planned in 2013.
