THE STORY:

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO DONATED TO MAKE THIS CAMPAIGN A TREMENDOUS SUCCESS! THE CAMPAIGN HAS CLOSED. PLEASE DO NOT MAKE ANY FURTHER DONATIONS THROUGH THIS PAGE.
FUNDS WILL BE DISTRIBUTED TO EACH ORGANIZATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THEIR GRANT AGREEMENT WITH WORLD OF CHILDREN AWARD.

Twelve years ago, Jimmy Drekore met a ten year-old girl at a hospital. She was abandoned at the hospital after she was brought in for treatment of injuries sustained in a car accident. She’d been living in the hospital, entirely alone, for seven years. Jimmy met other children just like this girl, with no one to love them or advocate for their medical care. Determined to help, Jimmy called upon his community in Simbu Province, Papua New Guinea to help them and other children in need of medical care. Since the founding of Simbu Children Foundation, Jimmy and a network of volunteer fundraisers that spans Papua New Guinea and Australia have provided financial support and facility repairs to a local hospital, a power project for a local orphanage, travel expenses for many children to receive heart surgery in a larger city, and even funded research that successfully developed a new treatment for a painful bone disease suffered by many Papua New Guinean children. World of Children Award will DOUBLE MATCH all donations made through this page between September 15 and October 21, 2016, up to $10,000. That means your $10 donation turns into $30 for children. Your $100 turns into $300!
