Avela Foundation

The Avela Foundation is a non-profit organisation inspired by one amazing child who overcame all the difficulties she faced, with a little help from those who care.

We are dedicated to providing healthcare and emotional healing to South African children that have survive burn injuries. Some of these children have disfiguring scars and we know that with the right support they will be able to achieve the impossible and become mentors to other burn survivors.

We also want to shift the personal and public perception of these children. Just because they look a little different, doesn’t mean they should be treated differently and be bullied.

Recovering of mind, body and soul after suffering from burn injuries is a process many of us can’t begin to understand. Donate NOW to make it easier for them.
