What We Do

Most of the children who are sick and dying in the world suffer from common, treatable diseases such as pneumonia, diarrhea, tuberculosis, malaria and dehydration.  One might assume that if such a child is able to get to a hospital or clinic, he or she will receive the necessary care and treatment, but sadly this often is not the case.

The hospital systems in developing countries are often unable to treat their pediatric patients because of supply shortages. Even in some of the most modern University facilities found in Africa and South America, there are severe shortages in medicines and supplies. Such circumstances result in increased mortality and morbidity of those who become ill. Especially affected are the smallest and weakest: children.

Some people never really experience infancy at all, taking on the role of caregiver for stoned parents and dependent peers as young as 3 or 4. When babies wake up screaming in the middle of the night and no one else is around, they change nappies and prepare bottles for the babies. Standing on a chair next to the kitchen, they learn how to prepare meals for the family.

There are very few charities targeting this general pediatric population. The Foundation does not give grants to other agencies, charities, trusts or foundations.  The Medicine for Sick Children Foundation (MSCF) gives help where it is needed most: directly to pediatric hospitals and clinics to treat these basic diseases.
