About

Art therapy is essential to improve the mental health and emotional and psychological well-being of those who suffer from  epidermolysis bullosa (EB), which are mostly children  known as butterfly children. We are aiming to raise awareness and support butterfly children around the world and be part of their journey of resilience by helping them both physically and psychologically and draw a smile on their faces. 

Please join us to appreciate the creativity and hard work of those talented fighters and show them that their lives matter. Be part of the raising awareness campaign, which could be pivotal in discovering new ways and techniques to encourage them to lead better lives. Your presence will be a grain of hope midst the pain endured by them. 

Scientific studies have proven that art  improves the quality of EB patients lifestyle and makes them feel and express themselves better, elevates their mood,  improves their problem-solving ability, opens their minds to new ideas and empower them to continue fighting for their lives. 

The conference is organized by Yasmin El Samra Foundation DEBRA Egypt and endorsed by DEBRA International.
