APPLY FOR TREATMENT
For your child to receive surgery
We are pleased you have found our organization and request our assistance to provide access to medical care for your child. Childspring International is a globally-focused nonprofit based in the United States that provides life-changing surgeries for children from developing countries, and as a result transforms communities. Since our inception, we have treated over 4,000 children from 52 countries with a variety of conditions that are treatable with access to surgical care.
Childspring typically serves children less than 18 years of age with conditions that can be treated with a single surgery. Historically, Childspring has served cases in the areas of orthopedics, prosthetics, angiology (vascular), cardiology, ophthalmology, plastics, gastroenterology, urology, neurology, otorhinolaryngology (ear, nose, & throat), and general surgery cases. Each case is evaluated individually, and we cannot guarantee treatment for all children.
Typically, we cannot serve children living with chronic conditions like spina bifida, hydrocephalus, diabetes, cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, Down syndrome, epilepsy, muscular dystrophy, and cancer. In addition, our organization does not provide organ transplants.
If an acceptable treatment location and plan is secured within 12 months, Childspring will work with you to provide medical treatment at no cost to the family. For cases involving travel to the United States, Childspring will help you and your child:
Prepare proper documentation for the child’s visa and travel,
Support transportation for the child to the treatment location,
Make arrangements for a host family during the child’s stay,
Provide regular updates on medical progress, and
Ensure the child is returned safely home after their surgery.
Please download our Treatment Applications and follow instructions for submission within. We look forward to receiving your application.
