Heal a child, change the world.

Geography should not be the reason why a child lives or dies

Regardless of culture or geography, children create the love that inspires parents, they are the glue that connects families and the source of a community’s hope. Most developing countries still lack access to pediatric critical care resources, especially surgical care, leaving parents without a way to care for sick children.

Children in developing countries are suffering and dying from birth defects, illness, and injury routinely treated in the U.S.

Through our four programs, WPP treats children suffering from birth defects, illness, and injury while empowering local medical communities to better care for their children. Learn more!
