Primary Trauma Care Foundation

Charity description

Primary Trauma Care Foundation logo
You can give superpowers to lifesavers!

We exist to save lives and prevent disability in developing countries. We teach front-line health workers how to deliver emergency medical care with only basic equipment. This life-saving training is completely free, funded entirely by donations.

Why we need your help

Injuries caused by accidents, natural disasters, war and violence kill more young people than HIV, malaria and tuberculosis combined.

Every year, 5.8 million people die from traumatic injuries, mostly children and younger adults. Many more who survive are left with life-long disabilities.

Half of the world's people will not have access to skilled trauma care in their communities if they sustain serious injuries.

What your donation will achieve

Your donation will help fund our life-saving work. Our courses equip those on the front line of emergency care with the skills they need to be effective in saving life and limb with only very basic equipment.

By donating, you'll indirectly become a lifesaver, too.

Thank you.
