Be Burn Aware (First Three Months)

Ahl Masr capitalizes on its knowledge that burns above all are preventable. Most of the burn cases we treat are caused by direct exposure to flames and stoves explosion. Since 2.8 billion Egyptians are still using firewood, dung, coal and unstable gas powered stoves for cooking and keeping warm inside their homes every day and 12.6% live with no separate kitchen with inadequate safety measures. The simplest solution is to replace inefficient, smoky stoves with more efficient, stable ones. Providing people with such improved stoves would save almost 80,000 lives every year. Moreover, because stoves are more efficient, they would save about 30% fuel and make cooking more efficient and healthy. An effective, improved stove and effective burn awareness program to the families are needed to reduce the hazards of burns dramatically. The awareness program against burns is designed with two directions; one dedicated for children and the other designed for adults. The program offers a variety of burn prevention tools, including: Activity Books (ages 3-7) and (ages 8-12), fact cards, scalds awareness and fire safety tips. Ahl Masr will target Beni Suef, governorate in Upper Egypt to use as a sample for our prevention strategy. Ahl Masr will measure the success of this approach and use as a case study to integrate a comprehensive burn prevention and care program into national health plans and policies. Be Burn Aware initiative will foster the involvement of different NGO’s to complete the intervention circle. In addition to our burn module different partnerships will be constructed to provide infrastructure and other safety measurements such as households, water and Energy security. This effective approach will help us support the development of appropriate policy for integrated model for burn prevention and safety nationwide.
