Who We Are

Brief History

Since 2003, the World Forgotten Children Foundation (WFCF) has been supporting the health and welfare needs of children with disabilities living in developing countries. In recent years WFCF has expanded its mission to include aid to the communities these children live in and underdeveloped communities worldwide. We believe that when the community is sustainable and able to thrive, everyone benefits.

Mission and Vision Statement

The World Forgotten Children Foundation (WFCF) is a private non-profit effort, founded for the sole purpose of supporting projects that promote the health and welfare needs of underprivileged communities and orphaned children with disabilities in developing countries.

Our vision is a world where no child goes without the medical and therapeutic help and equipment they need. We envision a world that utilizes sustainable practices in communities for the benefit of all.
