The Beauty Companies Association (BCA) is proud to announce that they are now supporting the Healing Hands Network (Registered Charity Number 1080268)


The HHN (www.healinghandsnetwork.org.uk ) is a small UK-based self-funded charity founded 17 years ago in the wake of the Balkan Conflict and Siege of Sarajevo. Since then, volunteer therapists have been traveling to Bosnia and Hezegovina for a two-week visit where they carry out treatments on survivors of the conflict. More recently, the organisation has launched the Forces Project based in the UK, providing therapies to returning UK servicemen and women who may be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other mental and physical after-effects of active service and also their families.


Sue Stretton, Director of the HHN, comments, “As the charity receives no funding apart from donations, we are extremely grateful for the support from the BCA. The support will be used to build on the success that the forces project has gained so far and enable us extend the work our volunteer therapists do across the UK”


Dean Nathanson, Chairman of the BCA, discusses why they chose to support the charity; “The BCA is proud to support the Healing Hands charity as the excellent and commendable work of the charity perfectly demonstrates the positive effects that holistic and beauty treatment therapies can have in healing the lives of soldiers and their families that have been injured through conflict whilst protecting and safe-guarding the lives of others”
