Our work on behalf of children include subsidising breaks to the Dead Sea for therapy and relief, to designing visual stimuli to keep the young minds calm, informed and balanced.
Skin disease can have a huge impact on children, affecting their childhood, their development, self-esteem and confidence. Some Skin diseases prevent a child from joining in on school activities such as playing outside with friends during break and swimming lessons as it can exacerbate their skin further.
It is often said that school days are the best days of your life. But for some their memories are of bullying, social exclusion, poor attendance, which can lead to withdrawal and isolation into adult life. Skin disease also causes sleep disturbances, which can lead to behavioural problems, potentially impacting a child’s academic and social development.
Therefore, it is important that education starts early from schools and awareness is raised; support provided to the child, as well as strategies and support to schools in dealing with any treatment they may need to aid in and the support they may need to provide.
All donations are graciously received, thank you for supporting 'skin awareness - in support of skin disease sufferers and their carers'.
