In September 2014 and October 2015, the FCHF partnered with R.E.S.T.O.R.E. Worldwide (restoreworldwide.org )  a United States based non-profit medical service organisation to provide free reconstructive surgery (including breast reduction for breast cancer patients) and related medical services for abused women, children and battered individuals with traumatic injuries and congenital deformities  The mission was able to serve 60 patients in one week and it was purely voluntary and free.

FCHF was responsible for the following:

We shall focus primarily on people with traumatic injuries and deformities, and in the case of children; those with congenital deformities.

Our gallery shows pictures of the 2014 and 2015 FCHF/R.E.S.T.O.R.E. Mission and includes pictures of individuals with injuries and deformities. Everyday countless women, children and men are faced with this ever complicated and glaring battle of dealing with the stigmatization and isolation related to these structural deformities. Most of the injuries the Mission gathered, are from several forms of accidents including those arising out of poor techniques of usage of fire or heat to make a living. The Mission went to visit the communities from which some of the affected individuals hailed  and the discoveries were rather chilling, sending shockwaves down our spines
