Free e-book - The gift of a smile
A single moment can change a whole life. For Ute Winkler-Stumpf, that moment came one evening in August 1994 when she saw a TV program about a disease called noma. The bacterial infection affects almost exclusively malnourished children in developing countries and leads to devastating facial disfigurements.
Shocked by the images of these children, Ute Winkler-Stumpf felt it wasn’t enough to donate money. She decided to take matters into her own hands and founded Hilfsaktion Noma e.V. What started with two boys from Niger, whom she brought to Germany for surgery, has grown into the world’s largest campaign to fight noma over the last quarter century.
