What we do

We want to support South African children with burn injuries. Through fund raising, we can assist with their psychological support. This will help them discover their full potential, as recovery is a lifelong rehabilitative process.

Funding will provide for the latest equipment to improve appearance, texture and thickness of their burn scars.

It is also our goal to raise funds to fulfil their special wishes through the Avela #TogetherToGift project.
