Speaking about MellowSwan Foundation is speaking about Sonia. She believes that with time the organization will be able to help many children around the world who had been born with handicaps and she has been devoting time and countless efforts to the cause. She knows how hard it is to live with a handicap, because she had polio when she was just a toddler, and courageously she learned to put those difficulties to the side and had faced life's challenges with enthusiasm and joy. She has adopted children with congenital problems and has managed to help them adjust to society and live useful, beautiful lives. She has experience, drive, personality and an iron will. She is giving the organization her strength and knowledge.

We are a international all volunteer, medical charitable non profit foundation.
Our goal is to provide medical care for deformed orphans worldwide.

Some volunteers do research on orphanages to seek deformed orphans who need medical care.

for a non criminal history, a police report and fill
an application that is presented to the Board of Directors for approval.
