Help a Great Cause that is Underfunded Across the World
Severe burn injuries are underfunded worldwide. HandReach provides holisitic, accessible treatments across the globe to ensure the best pediatric burn care and rehabilitation in the places they’re needed most. As the only American-based organization helping burn survivors internationally, Handreach trains care centers overseas to treat complex injuries and promote full rehabilitation for children, regardless of income, location, and health care coverage.
Please join Professor Cathryn Edelstein and her Nonprofit Fundraising class for a truly impactful experience! To learn more about Ignite the Night and HandReach check out www.handreach.org and like the organizations on Twitter and Facebook.
