Refer a Child
Parents, doctors traveling overseas, family friends, representatives at hospitals worldwide, Childspring international coordinators, missionaries.
A wide gamut of individuals and organizations refer children to Childspring for possible treatment - one voice advocating for a child can transform his or her life.
Please read the Refer-A-Child criteria below to learn more about how we determine whether we can help a child.
Childspring Refer-A-Child Criteria
Childspring International’s purpose is to serve children under the age of 18 seeking medical care unavailable in the child’s home country. Childspring is only able to treat conditions for which there is a surgical intervention. We cannot accept patients with conditions such as cancer, motor and/or mental retardation, and chronic conditions for which there is no surgical intervention. We are also unable to accept overly complex multi-disciplinary cases, such as organ transplants, that require extensive follow up care. Any questions or concerns can be directed to the appropriate case manager.
The completion of these documents will involve the child, the child’s parents or legal guardians, and the child’s physician in his or her home country. It is a time-consuming process to obtain all of the documentation needed, but once we have this information we are able to evaluate the child’s condition.
Following the evaluation we refer their case to doctors and hospitals in the U.S. The acceptance of a child depends on the willingness of doctors and hospitals to work with us on that particular case. We often get questions about our policies and procedures in bringing a child to the U.S. For more information, contact our Program Director Christina Porter at email@example.com.
