For 25 years, PCRF has been helping children in the Middle East by leading Medical Missions into the Middle East, arranging for children to receive medical care through Treatment Abroad, and sponsoring Humanitarian Programs.
Over the past six years, over 500 medical teams consisting on thousands of volunteers from all over the world have given their time and experience to travel to the Middle East through the PCRF to treat thousands of children.
The PCRF currently is supporting two programs in Palestine to build up local services and to provide life-saving surgery for sick children with heart defects.
The goal of the POET program is to build up local capacity in Palestine so children with orthopedic deformities can be treated adequately by highly skilled local surgeons and to reduce the referral of patients abroad or out of the public system.
The PCRF is the main nonprofit arranging free care for sick and injured children who cannot be treated in their homeland. Since 1992, we have sent nearly 2,000 from all over the Middle East.
The Gaza Pediatric Mental Health Initiative was started following the attacks on Gaza in the summer of 2014, in which the entire population of Gaza, which is 50% children, were subjected to 55 days or bombardment from land, sea and air.
The PCRF team in Jordan and Lebanon work hard with local doctors, NGOs and other nonpolitical partners to identify children in need and to reach the most vulnerable communities.
Our program doesn’t give the families cash donations, but rather our field workers buy the medicine or supplies that the children need, through the support of donors abroad.
Through foreign sponsors, our field-workers provides food, clothing, medicine and other basic aid. Our sponsors get regular updates on the orphans they help, including a photo and update.
