Healing for all Children

We dream of a world where every child has access to life-saving medical care regardless of circumstance.

In the world today, there are many children who are suffering from sickness that can be helped. Often times, a simple surgery can transform a child’s life far beyond physical healing. Unfortunately, barriers get in the way. A family can be limited by funds, insurance status or physical location. This is where Healing the Children steps in to help. Through the generosity of our vast network of donors, volunteers and partnering organizations we bring healing experts to these children in need, free of charge.


Even with an army of helpers, how do we do it?

We make dreams of healing come true in three different ways:


1. Medical Teams: We organize and manage teams of volunteer medical professionals to travel to hospitals around the world. They work alongside the hospital’s personnel and form relationships cultivating both teaching and learning. For the 10 or so days that the team is abroad they help dozens of children.


2. Inbound Program: Although there are some highly specialized medical teams, some children with rare or severe problems require advanced equipment and more help. The inbound program connects children to doctors by bringing the child to a doctor in the U.S. The charity of hospitals, doctors, airline escorts and host families make this program possible.


3. Domestic Partners: There are also children in the U.S. that fall through the cracks of safety nets and social services. For example, sometimes children with cleft lips or palettes are helped for the initial surgery, but not for the expensive orthodontic work or equipment that comes later in life. We partner with doctors and local social organizations to meet this need. 


Please help us heal the children of the world. Every dollar goes toward travel or medical expenses. Every dollar makes a big difference!
