The Hero Burn Foundation
Burns are one of the most common household injuries, especially among children. Burn Survivors and their Families need intensive support after such an incident. The Hero Burn Foundation strives to ensure the availability of a comprehensive program of Burn Related Services to Burn Survivors, their Families and all other South Africans.
The Founder of Hero Burn Foundation is a Burn Survivor after being involved in a light aircraft accident on the 18th of October 2008 near Lephalale, in which her husband rescued her from the burning wreck.
A Non Profit Company to support other Burn Survivors and create Burn Awareness, was registered in Loving Memory of Mr Henk Du Plooy (09/06/1977 – 29/10/2008) who selflessly gave his life by shielding her from the flames. Henk sustained 75% 3rd degree severe burns as well as internal burns and passed away eleven days after the accident.

We need your help!
Most people can recover from burns however, serious burns require immediate emergency medical care to prevent complications and death, unfortunately this kind of emergency medical care as well as the post trauma medical treatment is long and comes at huge financial expense!
