Message from the President of WFCF

There is an unimaginable degree of joy in seeing a smile on the face of a child. Especially, if that child happens to live in conditions that most would find inconceivable, such as an unequipped orphanage home for children with physical or mental disabilities. Regrettably, there are millions of children facing these odds around the world that are in desperate need of help.

Sadly, in many developing countries around the world, children with physical or mental disabilities are viewed by many families as a financial liability. Many of these families abandon these children to orphanage facilities that are by no means equipped to handle their basic nutritional and medical needs, and are unable to provide them decent and humane care. Many children facing these unfortunate circumstances die at an average age of 13 years old, and those who survive will never be able to benefit from a very full or quality life.

The primary mission of the World Forgotten Children Foundation (WFCF) is to provide nutritional, medical, rehabilitation, and educational support toward the welfare of indigent orphaned children with mental or physical disabilities in developing countries. WFCF intends to assist these children around the world based on the available resources of the foundation.

Although the mission of WFCF is immensely vast, WFCF can make a difference in assisting one child at a time anywhere around the globe. I personally would like to invite you to join us in carrying out this challenge by becoming a supporter of this foundation and its cause. Help WFCF carry out its mission in providing humanistic support to these children. Your donation and support, no matter how great or small, can provide comfort to a child in need in an orphanage home.

Thank you for your generous support. I hope that you will assist us in providing helping hands to these less fortunate children of the world.
