Changing Children's Lives, Incorporated was founded in 2007 as a non-profit philanthropic organization. Our main purpose is to send qualified medical teams to developing nations in order to benefit children, usually through plastic surgical procedures. These treatments are usually for cleft lip and palate, congenital and traumatic facial deformities and burns, and also include congenital hand surgery and various other operations.
Our mission is to offer life-altering surgeries to children of developing nations. These cost-free reconstructive operations not only serve the host country’s youth, but also give the host country’s medical professionals the opportunity to improve their skills and expertise. Our hope is that through this experience, the health care staff of the participating nations will eventually become self-sufficient in performing surgeries of this nature. Changing Children’s Lives is also committed to establishing strong international relationships. We believe that this ambassadorship, as well as our hands-on approach to health education, will ultimately advance the quality of medical care worldwide.
