Facing the World

Facing the World provides reconstructive surgery to children from the developing world with the most severe facial disfigurements

Founded 2002

  • Mission statement

    Facing the World is a children's charity. It has been set up some of the UK’s leading craniofacial surgeons so that children in desperate need, living without hope in the world’s poorest countries, can have access to the very best surgery that can transform their faces and radically change their quality of life.

    We are here to offer facial surgery to children from poor countries across the globe that have no other chance of finding the surgery to help them overcome their disfigurement. We will also support the development of new ways of treating severe and sometimes devastating facial disfigurements through research. Facing the World has the medical resources, the infrastructure, the desire and the determination to change the life of these children who have no hope.

  • Aims

    Facing the World aims to:

    • the first aim is helping children for whom surgery can be life-changing and who have no other hope of being treated in their country, bringing them from over 20 countries to the UK for the treatment.
    • Wherever possible we enable children to be treated locally networking and providing international training to enable local medical teams to treat children y in their own coutries.
