We would also love to hear from any students interested - in any course, year, level and campus. All are welcome.
What is epidermolysis bullosa (EB) or "butterfly skin"?

Imagine if your skin was as fragile as a butterfly wing. If it broke, teared and
blistered at the slightest touch. If you had skin that took four hours every day to
bandage to keep you alive. Or skin that would not allow you to walk without
your feet splitting and burning.
This is the skin of someone living with EB, a genetic disorder that affects the
body’s largest organ; the skin.

This is great opportunity to volunteer to use your skills and talents for the benefit of the team at Debra and in turn to support the needs of those impacted by EB.

To find out more register your interest here now and we will be in touch to invite you to the brainstorming/ Hackathon session.

"We might be a small charity but, make no mistake, our mission and our ambitions are colossal.
We are here to tell Ireland and the world beyond its borders about Epidermolysis Bullosa."
