Helping our families in town for care

While the situation around COVID-19 continues to develop, it has certainly had an impact on our programs. As I shared last week, WPP has made the tough decision to postpone all international trips and U.S. referrals for the near future.

But we still have a dozen children who have traveled here to the United States for care – care that has been impacted by changing policies, social distancing, and a necessary narrowing of outside trips to ensure their safety.

These families have come a long way to get life-changing and saving care for their children, and this has certainly made an already stressful time more so, but their commitment and your support has gotten them this far – and we hope that we can rely on you to help, however you can, in this time of need.

Here are a few ways you can help:

1. Make A Gift to Heal a ChildYour gift today will help provide meals, transportation, and more to the families in town for care.
2. Donate Wish List Items – We have updated our Amazon Wishlists with essential items to help our families. You can donate these from the safety of your own home, and donated items will be delivered right to our doorstep and passed along to our families.
I know this is a crazy time for you, too, as we all adapt to events that seem to be changing daily. I hope that you and your family are all happy, healthy, and safe. We will continue to update you on how World Pediatric Project is doing via email and on our dedicated webpage:

Thank you for making all of this possible. Your support helps touch thousands of lives each year – and we’ll all get through this together.
