A Nurse from Pembrokeshire (south west of Wales) is embarking on a charity mission to Ethiopia in the New Year to help patients with life-altering deformities in the African country.

Catherine Collins, 32, from Lower Freystrop, will be visiting Ethiopia in February 2018 with Project Harar, a charity which gives medical access to help people living with facial deformities.

Catherine will be spending two months in the country, working for the charity’s annual complex mission with a team of doctors, nurses, surgeons and other medical practitioners.

The team bases itself in a hospital in Addis Ababa, and patients from across rural areas of Ethiopia visit for operations on disfigurement caused by burns, tumors, animal attacks, or cleft palates.

“Quite often these people are segregated in the community because of the way they look,” said Catherine.

She explained that the charity’s full-time workers in Ethiopia spend their time searching rural communities for people who may have been hidden away because of their faces, and organize their operations.

Project Harar sees between 50 and 60 patients during each mission, as well as many more throughout the year and demand for medical attention is always high.

Their two month mission begins with two weeks of preparing patients for surgery, making sure they are fed a good diet and are ready to be operated on.
