All For the Burned Child
The COANIQUEM Burned Children Foundation provides support for the burned children of the Americas. With medical facilities in three locations in Chile, we have rehabilitated more than 125,000 children since we began more than 40 years ago..
Combines medical attention, restorative healing and comprehensive rehabilitation programs to treat physical and psychological scars.
Trained professionals from a wide range of specializations are part of the multidisciplinary staff: medical doctors, registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, psychologists and social workers. Teachers at the school on campus ensure that children of all ages who are undergoing treatments keep up with their education.
Support Our Laser Technology Fund
COANIQUEM is adopting the use of lasers to treat scars on burned children. By creating micro-perforations on the tissue, the scar remain softer and more pliable, allowing healthy tissue grown around it! The Burned Children Foundation is committed to help COANIQUEM raise the funds for the equipment. Click here for more information!
