Noma is a severe facial gangrene that primarily affects children under the age of 6 in poverty stricken regions.
Despite having a mortality rate of approximately 90% it is easily treated in the early stages with vitamin rehabilitation and antiseptic mouthwashes. It leaves survivors with severe facial deformities and leaves them as misunderstood social outcasts in their communities. Students Facing Noma Queens fundraises for Facing Africa, an established charity in the UK. A variety of social events and low key fundraisers on campus are
organized and run by Students Facing Noma’s volunteer team.
