Grants and Health Care Support

If you have foundation or know of a foundation that would like to help our mission, please contact us at We will prepare a full proposal and request for funding. The information below will give you a glimpse at the Children of War Foundation's structure.  

As an international organization, our goal is to eventually to have reach to children globally.  Many of these children are those of the working poor who can't afford or have no insurance at all and or their insurance will not cover care. Others are from families who would suffer significant financial hardship if they were to pay for the necessary and costly medical treatment. The majority of the children we have treated are either victims of war, displacement, poverty and or live in a country that does not have the resources.  

It is this chance to make a difference that makes Children of War Foundation a unique philanthropic opportunity. Today, approximately seven percent of American children are born with pediatric deformities and congenital defects such as cleft palate, missing limbs, and facial deformities. Even more children are affected each year due to disease, accidents or burn injuries.  The medical and developmental complications that arise from not correcting these ailments & conditions can be tremendous.

 Results from the Children of War Foundation Global Health Outreach are easily tangible and measurable in IMPACT.  An increased sense of self-worth, ability to be productive, contribute and be accepted in community and family, allow children to become eager to participate in school and community activities. As confident individuals, these children are now equipped to go on to live happy and successful lives. 

Accountability and efficient fund allocation is very important to us. To this end, our Medical Committee evaluates the success of our missions and outreach.
