Intervention

We help orphans and vulnerable children in developing nations who do not have access to advanced medical care.

By coordinating short-term visas for children with complex medical needs, or arranging for those needs to be met in their home nation, we bring hope and healing to these children.

Here are the stories of some of the children we have helped:

1. Daniela before her eye surgery, with Jodi.
2. Daniela recovering from surgery with a friend!

Daniela

Daniela is a little girl from Eastern Europe who needed eye surgery to see properly and learn to read.

We were able to coordinate her surgery as well as her ongoing vision therapy in her home nation by collaborating with her orphanage, grandmother, and international doctors.

Daniela is now in school, doing well and is very bright and engaging.

3. Now, Daniela's eyes look GREAT!

Acen & Apio

These adorable conjoined twins were born via a primitive Caeserean section in a remote place in Eastern Africa.

Thier heroic 19-year-old mother kept them alive until they could be brought to the U.S. for a complex separation surgery.  They were separated by a team of 30 medical professionals at National Children’s hospital and received many therapies. 

Today they are back in their village and thriving.

3. Now, two, heading home.
1. The twins and their mom, waiting for treatment.
2. The separation!
1. Jeannine, suffering in her village.
2. Getting treatment for her burns.

Jeannine

Jeannine had a seizure and fell into the fire while her mother was out getting water in their African nation.

She was suffering terribly from extreme burns to her hands and a resulting bone infection.  We helped Jeannine come to Shriners hospital in the U.S. for surgery and treatment. 

She is home with her parents and a happy little girl.

3. Jeannine, home again and doing great!

Jesqua

Jesqua swallowed acid and was unable to eat or drink in her home in Africa.

This condition was leading to her slow starvation.  We helped her come to the U.S. for reconstruction of her esophagus after two years in this condition.  You can see the joy on her face when she had her first taste of ice cream post-surgery. 
 
She is back to normal weight and living a healthy life.
3. Healed and thriving.
1. Jesqua in her home country, awaiting care.
2. Jesqua's big smile after her first bite of ice cream!
