One year anniversary in Ethiopia!!
Exactly one year ago, I traveled to Addis Ababa to officially begin the work of Burn Care International in Ethiopia. I am honored to partner with Dr. Einar Eriksen in this life changing work. I brought an excellent seamstress on board to work with us and she immediately understood the reason for using a pressure garment and has done an excellent job this year. I am looking forward to traveling to Ethiopia this fall to give some training to the medical staff on the use and importance of pressure garments for reducing scar formation and preventing contractures as well as catch up with the Ericksens and spend some time with Aminat! Working with burn survivors has been such a blessing for my life and I thanking God today and everyday that he gave me this ministry!

Hi, I'm Cindy,
God literally set me on fire in 2001 with third degree burns on 40% of my body so that I could understand the needs and so that I would have a passion for other burn victims......Now, I travel and teach, helping care givers in developing countries around the world with practical ideas on how to offer a low cost, effective, rehabilitation program for their patients.
