Medical mission and support act with Dr. Altintas and Mc Aesthetics in Djibuti

In May 2020, the Plastic surgeon Prof. Dr. Altintas from Cologne, Germany, and the Team Mc Aesthetics started another medical mission in Djibuti and supported people in need. 

Djibouti, officially the Republic of Djibouti, is a country located in the Horn of Africa in East Africa. It is bordered by Somalia in the south, Ethiopia in the south and west, Eritrea in the north, and the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden in the east. Djibouti is a multi-ethnic nation with a population of over 921,804 inhabitants (the smallest in mainland Africa). French and Arabic are the country’s two official languages. The life expectancy at birth is around 64.7 for both males and females. Fertility is at 2.35 children per woman.

Nevertheless, Djibuti still struggles with numerous tropical diseases and basic medical requirements, why help and support are of great value. As the need for help is still widely spread the number of helpers is far from enough. Especially, doctors are being sought for longer-term missions. Therefore, the organization Aesthecef Worldwide supports doctors who are willing to provide medical assistance in developing countries such as Djibuti

Here from 05 to 12 May, a new mission took place in the city of Djibuti, one of the poorest countries in the world. The founder and managing director of the Mc Aesthetics and Dr. Martin Hellsing (CEO and founder of Aesthecef Worldwide) helped again – without any money, many poor people who cannot afford an operation and suffer a lot of pain. Due to an ongoing lack of a modern health systems in many African countries such as Djibuti, patients have no access to plastic and reconstructive surgery. Only through such operations on site it is possible for patients to return to normal life. In Djibouti there are about 18 doctors per 100,000 persons.

A total amount of 102 patients were operated on, including many children with burn contractures.

“It simply feels good and right to help people out of their distress. My patients from Germany even gave me cuddly toys for the mission which we distributed to the children before the operation,” emphasizes Dr. Altintas.

For several years, the specialist for plastic and aesthetic surgery has been saving numerous lives in developing countries through such projects, and the number is rising because of missions like the one in Djibuti.
