We are glad and grateful that the experts of INTERPLAST SWITZERLAND will help poor people hit by Noma by supplying free plastic and reconstructive surgery.

First mission will take place in April 2013 in Guinea-Bissau, where NOMA-HILFE-SCHWEIZ co-financed the Noma-Center Antena Bissau.

Another mission is planned to Burundi in October 2013, where there were no activities against Noma so far - neither private nor governmental.


July 2013, Burkina Faso: Several teams of the French NoNoma organization "Les Enfants du Noma" have - in cooperation with other European and African NoNoma NGOs - operated dozens of patients. Among these were 31 noma patients, whose operations were financed* by our association. The program runs until the end of 2013.

* An operation costs an average of "only" approx. € 1,000, because the medical teams volunteer in their holidays.
