Humanitarian Programs

In the early 1990s, FACE TO FACE humanitarian programs were established so that AAFPRS members could use their skills and share their talent in helping the less fortunate individuals here and abroad.

There are three arms to the Foundation’s FACE TO FACE Program:

  • FACE TO FACE International
  • FACE TO FACE: The National Domestic Violence Project

FACE TO FACE: International brings AAFPRS members to third world countries where they treat children with facial birth defects and anomalies.

FACE TO FACE: The National Domestic Violence Project allows AAFPRS members to perform surgeries on survivors of domestic abuse here in the United States, who have received injuries to their faces.

The newest member to FACE TO FACE is FACES OF HONOR. This program offers free surgical care for soldiers who have been injured in the line of duty
