Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Surgeons Travel to Jordan
A medical team of specialized surgeons from the Division of Plastic and Maxillofacial Surgery and the Division of Pediatric Urology at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles departed for Amman, Jordan Thursday, May 30 for a weeklong medical mission to treat children with devastating physical deformities at the King Hussein Medical Center in Amman.
The hospital will be working in collaboration with the Children of War Foundation, a non-profit, non-politically affiliated organization that provides medical care to children with physical deformities that would be otherwise untreatable in their home country.
Children of War Foundation's mission is to provide access to donated transformative surgical care to children living with a physical deformity or injuries that cannot be treated in their home country.
Children of War Foundation is organized under the Non-profit Public Benefit Corporation Law for public and charitable purposes: Beverly Hills, California: Children of War Foundation, Registered Non-profit, 501(c)(3) Tax-Exempt Organization, Tax ID No. 272685205.
