The Children's Life Fund Authority

The Children's Life Fund is a charitable organization that provides funding to children who need life saving medical treatment abroad. Well over 235 cases have been approved for children who, if they did not receive these surgeries, would not be with us today. When you donate to the Children's Life Fund, you are making a life-saving investment in the future of these kids. We invite you to explore our website to understand the procedures or learn how you can contribute to give a child the surgery they need for a better quality of life.
