"He who saves a person's live, saves the whole world.ï¿½?
(From the Talmud)
If many people think like this,there won't be any suffering. Every year, between 80,000 and 90,000 children die of Noma worldwide. Only education and prevention canhelp in the long term. To do this we need your help. We needmoney for the children that are disfigured by Noma for their survival through medication, nutrition and operations.
Malnutrition, bad hygiene and social rejection are the biggest enemies in battling Noma. Even if the disease has already spread, cheap medication can still save children from severe disfigurements, which lead to rejection from their community.
The organization has already helped more than 50.000 children through education. The Hilfsaktion works on a volunteer basis in Germany. Thanks to past donations of more than six million euros, Noma e.V. could battle the disease in Niger and erect three children's stations, a treatment center at the national hospital and a hospital especially for Noma patients. Please help us with your donation to expand our help for the children so that by 2010, no child loses face because of the disease. The organization is recognized by the German Internal Revenue Service and donations are tax deductible. Thank you!
