Bara’s SDBM Diary

Nov 2012 - April 2013

Middle of November 2012 - You know how every day is more or less changing your life, one of those days which will have a huge influence on your future and when you begin some new journey to somewhere you´ve never been before. So this one was one of those days..

I was meant to meet my Californian friend who was in London for a few days and who was just going back to the states later on that day. However, we never met as he overslept and so I began my future journey on the bus from Hammersmith towards Clapham Junction where I was supposed to have an interview about my new volunteer position within the charity which supports skin disease sufferers.

And so in the late afternoon I sat down on the chair in the flat somewhere in Clapham Junction with another bunch of people who have never met each other before. I had actually no idea what I was gonna go through in the next couple of hours until I turned around and looked at the wall behind my back. OH MY GOD. If you saw those huge notes over the wall, you would definitely realize it´s not going to be just some kind of a little project...

Few hours later we all left the flat, and began to follow the rainbow, hoping that one day we´ll be standing right in front of it.

The prevalence of skin disease exceeds that of obesity, hypertension, or cancer. Despite skin being the largest organ of the human body, dermatological research remains one of the most under funded areas of medicine. In a world where society has an increasing preoccupation with image and it’s importance to every aspect of a person’s life, sufferers of skin diseases are feeling and being more marginalised and isolated than ever.
