Children diagnosed with a rare disease called Epidermolysis Bullosa receive special treatment and care at the NGO Jardim das Borboletas (Butterfly Garden) in Caculé, Bahia. The disease, which affects the skin is serious, non-contagious, and incurable, leaving wounds sensitive even to water. The Fraternity without Borders (FWB) has embraced this initiative to help maintain this work full of love and hope.
Today, sponsorship will provide these children with the chance of a better condition of life, through the purchase of high-cost medicines and dressings.
The treatment of EB is expensive; on average, it can cost between R$3,000 and R$40,000 per month for each patient. This amount includes the purchase of bandages, supplements, ointments, and medical care. With such a costly treatment, many patients depend exclusively on the work of the project to have more quality of life and less pain.
Apart from medicines, the children need clothes and a better quality of life in terms of housing.
Together, we want to give all these butterflies the best life possible, full of care, smiles, love, and faith that better days are ahead.
