WeHaveAFace.org Germany HUB

WeHaveAFace.org is expanding its reach to Germany with the guidance and participation of Dr. Herwig Lange.  Currently, Germany does not have a legal nonprofit status under WeHaveAFace.  However, our aim is to build a team in this region and to have a legal registered charity by 2018.  


​​WeHaveAFace.org thanks Dr. Herwig Lange for his help to widen our services to better the lives of our Huntington's and and Juvenile Huntington's patients and families. WeHaveAFace.org aims to broaden global awareness of Huntington's disease and Juvenile Huntington's disease. We must do everything we can to help find treatments or a cure for this disease. By embracing and utilizing various state-of-the-art technologies: international videos, films, radio, mobile application, electronic publications, and mainstream social networks, we will continue to reach our peers in the Huntington's community, as well as educating the general public.

​WeHaveAFace is the premier multimedia advocacy organization for Huntington's disease. The Board of Directors, Advisors, Advocates of WeHaveAFace are unpaid volunteers. The decision to remain as an unpaid, volunteer-only organization was to ensure that our priorities remain focused on allocating 100% of donations to our Huntington's and Juvenile Huntington's community via education, resources, and financial needs. It is also our mission to directly fund Huntington's and Juvenile Huntington's disease research.
