Burns Camp 2016 - £48,000
Burns injuries can require years of painful treatments and aftercare and children can face many problems adapting to their scars, rebuilding their self-confidence and reintegrating into a society that isn’t always kind to people who look different.
The Burns Unit run two week-long, residential Burns Camps per year – one camp for younger children (aged 5-10) and one for older children (aged 11-16). Both camps provide fun activities geared towards rehabilitation and increasing self-esteem.
The cost of sending one child to the camp, as well as the staffing costs, is £1,000. We would like to provide this opportunity to 50 children.
