Donate your Birthday to save burn patients

On his 50th Birthday, Sherif Madkour decided to forgo receiving gifts and instead requested donations for Ahl Masr’s burn patients to help save lives. The surprise came when a total of 150,000 EGP were raised. Consider doing the same on your Birthday and make a difference for Ahl Masr’s burn patients.

The survivors have nowhere to go and end up being unnoticed

Every year, there are 11 million burn patients worldwide, with half a million in Egypt, half of whom are children. 37% of burn patients in Egypt die within hours due to a lack of proper facilities, and the death rate increases to 60% within a few days due to infections and dehydration. The first six hours are critical for burn patients, and they require rapid and efficient intensive care. Initial treatment can last from one to three months, and the overall treatment journey can span several years with 30 to 40 operations. In Egypt, burns are the third leading cause of injury-related deaths, with road accidents being the primary cause. Blood is crucial for burn patients’ wound healing, as it plays a vital role in repairing damaged skin and tissues.

STORIES OF OUR HEROES

17 Victims… and the Grandson Still Resists An exhausted grandmother, worn down by the years and burdened by the weight of time, struggles to stay on her feet as she carries her injured grandson, who bears the scars of severe burns. Her pain is palpable. Let us not forget the magnitude of the tragedy. A sudden explosion deafened her ears, leaving destruction in its wake. The blast originated from an old, primitive stove, shattering everything in its path. Seventeen lives were lost in an instant. Some fought for survival, only to succumb to the flames. Others sought medical help, only to be met with ignorance and misguided treatments that sealed their fate. The grandmother embarked on a desperate quest for a hospital equipped to treat burns, witnessing the suffering of her grandson. As she watched her grandson’s mother recover before her eyes, the grandmother bore the burden of her grandchildren’s scorn. Her grandson’s life was cut short by his disfigurement.
