Rocialle receives a Certificate of Appreciation from Facing Africa

5th June 2014

Rocialle is delighted to have received a certificate of appreciation ‘for extraordinary generosity to our missions to Ethiopia’ from the charity Facing Africa, signed by Chairman Chris Lawrence. 

Facing Africa sends teams of volunteer surgeons to Ethiopia to perform facial reconstructive surgery on the victims of the disease noma, and Rocialle provides medical supplies such as procedure packs, swabs and dressings. 

In addition to the surgery, Facing Africa also encourages local doctors, surgeons and nurses to attend lectures and presentations by the volunteers in order to teach them new and better techniques. 

On receipt of the certificate, Mark Birchmore, Marketing Manager for Rocialle, commented, “We are delighted to receive this certificate, and to have contributed, in a small way, towards the great work done by this charity. I would encourage people to visit the Facing Africa website and read about how Chris Lawrence and the teams of volunteer clinicians are alleviating terrible suffering.”
