The Stop Violence Against Women Globally Campaign is a vocal petition / documentary which will serve as a tool to help educate communities on how acts of love and respect will always prevail over violent and abusive behavior. These materials will be translated and distributed worldwide through clinics and hospitals, including those involved in our Triage Training Program. The goal is to reduce domestic violence globally by raising awareness and providing educational support.
The Triage Training Program (TTP) supports medical communities in developing countries. This program has been developed in response to the overwhelming requests for aid from burn victims and medical communities worldwide. The TTP will begin by transporting physicians from various areas of the world to our main burn center in California for extensive training in burn care. Through our network partnerships we will be offering additional training in various areas in order to maximize benefits. The program will further provide training videos and computer software programs. Additionally, the TTP will implement telemedicine units and develop a global network of medical personnel to volunteer.
Project Faith is the Grossman Burn Foundation’s ongoing patient care program originally named after Faith Wanjugo. Faith, a mother of three, suffered debilitating burn injuries to her arms and face while working as a volunteer cook in Kenya, Africa. The surgeons at the Grossman Burn Centers generously donated their services and after nine reconstructive surgeries and rigorous physical and psychological rehabilitation, gave Faith her life back. “We are in the business of helping people and restoring lives. To be able to bring that level of care to deserving people here in the United States, as well as, disadvantaged parts of the world is truly gratifying”, Dr. Peter H. Grossman.
The International Burn Center in Kabul, Afghanistan is a strategic program partnership between Grossman Burn Foundation, Direct Relief International and Guardian Medevac. It is the first highly specialized nonprofit Reconstructive Surgery and Burn Center in the country and a beacon of hope to those who suffer from debilitating injuries, burns and congenital deformities that have left them physically handicapped. This center contributes to the development of a critical hospital infrastructure for the betterment of Afghans’ lives. Furthermore, this highly specialized center will make available emergency burn care treatment and support for our military clinics who are in desperate need of assistance in this region.
On a local level, the Grossman Burn Foundation supports community education and prevention efforts and meets the needs of burn victims and their families who receive treatment at the Grossman Burn Center, which serves communities throughout Orange, Los Angeles, Ventura and Kern counties, through two major programs. The first is our Local Community Outreach Initiative which includes prevention awareness, related activities and partnerships with agencies working in the public safety, education and healthcare sectors to raise awareness for parents, professionals and other key groups that work with communities on how they can prevent burn injuries. The second is Grossman Burn Foundation’s Patient Supportive Services and Assistance Program. This program is being developed to provide a continuum of care and support for burn victims while they are receiving treatment at a Grossman Burn Center (in Orange, Los Angeles and Kern counties) and their families who need emergency and/or on-going assistance to meet specific and immediate needs. Support Services may include temporary housing for victims and loved ones, food, clothing, transportation, counseling, peer support and other basic needs.
