BERLIN KLINIK international hospital - Charity
Each day children are the victims of wars, displacement, ethnic cleansings, violence, landmines, and torture.
"Our patients are children that have been so badly mutilated that they don't have the chance of adequate care and provision in their home countries. For ten years we have been helping these children and their families to overcome the horrific injuries and be able to live a humane life. We employ the most modern methods of plastic-reconstructive surgery."
Prof. Dr. Frank-W. Peter
It is our goal to give people that don't have a chance in this world a glimmer of hope. We would like to help victims of terror, war, torture, ethnic persecution, and land mines. They are mutilated, disfigured, helpless and unable to lead an independent life. We operate with the most modern methods of plastic-reconstructive surgery. Precondition is that injuries are so severe that adequate provision in the home country cannot be guaranteed. We would like to give the victims the possibility to again lead an independent, self-determined, and humane life. Most important to us is the sustainability of patient care. This means: We maintain contact long-term and enable further treatment in Germany that we carry out in a voluntary capacity. Our organisation is a not-for-profit, charitable, internationally active association. It is legally recognised as such by the relevant institutions, i.e. the local courts and fiscal authorities. We procure labour, expertise, time, and equipment on a voluntary basis.
News of war and terror are reaching us on a daily basis, but the consequences for the people directly affected are often difficult to grasp. A group of doctors, associated under "placet Berlin-Plastic-Surgery Centre for the victims of terror", is attending to the young victims and is treating them in Berlin Hospitals. An extraordinary art auction is now helping to fund this ambitious project.

placet Charity BERLIN-KLINIK
The actors behind the organisation "placet" are experts in plastic-reconstructive surgery. Since 2010 the BERLIN-KLINIK has been contributing its expertise in dental oral surgery and oral maxillofacial surgery. Doctors have been operating under the guidance of Prof. Frank-W. Peter in the DRK Hospital in Westend since 2001, and since 2010 also in the BERLIN KLINIK – all on a voluntary basis besides employment. Patients are predominantly children from crisis-ridden countries. They are the victims of terror, war, torture, or ethnic persecution and cannot receive adequate medical care in their home countries.

Instead of cheap talk – help!
