The Placet e.V. Association

Treatments free of charge – the association placet e. V. makes a healthy, new life possible for terror victims

Since 2001 placet e. V. has been committed to the plastic-surgical treatment and health care of people who have been seriously injured by war or terror and cannot receive appropriate medical treatment in their countries of origin.

Behind the non-profit Berlin association are the founder Prof. Frank-Werner Peter (https://www.beauty-pro.de/) and a group of renowned doctors working on a voluntary basis as well as a committed staff. As well as aid organizations, churches and private initiatives.

Over 500 operations since 2001

The placet doctors have operated on over 50 patients more than 500 times since 2001.
Disfigurements, burn scars, functional disorders, contractures, open wounds and other physical defects are treated with plastic surgery (including microsurgical techniques).

In addition to functional reconstruction, the placet team of doctors also aims to restore a dignified, aesthetic appearance. At the same time psychologists take care of the psychological consequences of the trauma.
In this way, patients – mainly children and young people – are given back independence, courage and dignity and are given a new, healthy life.

From the conflict zones to Germany

The victims of terrorism come from Afghanistan, Iraq, Chechnya, Kenya, Angola, Tajikistan and Mauritania. The placet staff also help with the formalities and requirements of daily life. Interpreters are consulted in case of language problems.

The patients, often children, are usually accompanied by a family member. We provide them with everything they need to live: accommodation, food and drink, new clothes.
As well as medical care. From orthopaedic aids, medicines, physiotherapy to dressing material.

Once the treatment is completed, the patients return to their homes. Some of the children remain in the SOS Children’s Village or Peace Village until they have fully recovered. There they are looked after, go to school and learn the German language.

Press Quotes

“Finally, Amir can laugh again.”

Qualvolle Jahre liegen hinter Amir (6). Bei einem Unfall in seiner afghanischen Heimat hatte er als Kleinkind schlimme Verletzungen erlitten. Weil die nicht fachgerecht behandelt wurden, bildeten sich großflächige Narben, die ihn sogar beim Essen und Trinken behinderten.

Bild Zeitung 02.2020

“Donate hope.”

“Yes, we were diligent and spent your money wisely”, writes Prof. Dr. Frank-Werner Peter from the Klinik am Wittenbergplatz.

Thanks to his Plastic Surgery Center for Terror Victims (placet), children who have been victims of war, torture or terror can be treated at the Helios Clinic Emil von Behring or at the Martin Luther Hospital.

Der Tagesspiegel 11. 2019

“All the wounds, the terror.”

What is normal for us in Germany is a luxury for children in war and crisis zones: appropriate medical treatment.

All the wounds that wars, terror or accidents burn into bodies and souls every day in the world can often not be treated locally. People die from injuries and infections that could have been healed in a better place.

FOCUS 12.2018

Organisation

The non-profit association placet e. V. was founded in 2002 by Prof. Frank W. Peter together with other doctors and committed individuals in order to help injured people, especially children, who lack their own financial means and cannot receive appropriate medical treatment in their countries of origin.

The association works closely with other aid organisations, churches and private initiatives to establish contact with the victims.

Selection procedure

The placet team of doctors decides who can be helped after reviewing the applications, documents and photos. The injured and, if necessary, their companions are flown to Berlin or Essen and treated.

Full support

The association works closely with other aid organisations, churches and private initiatives to establish contact with the victims.


Surgical Techniques

Disfigurements, burn scars, functional failures, contractures, open wounds and other physical defects are treated with the methods of plastic surgery, including microsurgical techniques.

Function, aesthetics & human dignity

Neben der funktionellen Rekonstruktion zielt das placet Ärzteteam auf die Wiederherstellung eines menschenwürdigen, ästhetischen Aussehens. Gleichzeitig kümmern sich Psychologen um die seelischen Folgen des Traumas.

This comprehensive treatment supports the development of the personality and the intercultural perspective of the patients.

Sustainability

Sustainability is important to placet. This means that we strive for long-term contact with our patients. Severe disfigurement requires many operations and recurring treatments.
