Cooking fires and oil heaters make Nepal the global epicenter for severe burns, which claim over 2,000 lives annually in Nepal alone. Many of these lives could be saved with skin grafts. Like other organs, skin can be donated, but Nepal’s sole skin bank needs donors to start saving lives. The Extreme Awareness person-to-person model for building trust in skin donation targets family consent by leveraging the existing Rotary infrastructure to distribute our ready-made toolkit, which will help clubs implement the process of building trust through a set of rewarding and actionable steps.
