Girl with burn injuries

Thousands of children suffer burn-related injuries each year, mainly due to flame and hot liquid used in the cooking area which is often situated at ground level. People in this rural area are very poor and cannot afford medical treatment. Often contractures of the face and chin as well as the upper and lower extremity impede daily functioning and have an enormous psycho-social impact. The application of basic plastic surgical principles such as transposition of skin flaps restores these functions dramatically.
