Tonmoy, a boy from Dhaka, was unable to raise his arms because of burns he received as a small boy. A few years ago, ReSurge surgeons restored his functionality. Now, he is back to living the life of "a normal boy", as he puts it.
Take the Pledge

Every five seconds, someone in a developing country is severely burned.

This painful and often crippling condition afflicts nearly 11 million people worldwide each year. In some parts of the globe, burns affect more children than HIV/AIDS, malaria or tuberculosis.

Burns are an ignored but solvable global health crisis. Sign the pledge below and join the growing movement advocating for solutions for the millions of people suffering with severe burns.


Take the ReThink Burns Pledge

I believe no one should suffer a disabling burn just because they are poor. I care about poor women and children and stand with them in an effort to reduce burn injuries and save lives. I will ReThink Burns, because solutions exist.

Please note you will receive an email to confirm your pledge. Please confirm it so that we may count your voice. Your name will not be added until you do so. After confirming/subscribing your pledge, you will receive a thank you email and occasional updates on our progress in the fight against burns. You can unsubscribe from these emails at any time.
