Nonprofit Overview

Causes: International, International Development, International Relief

Mission: The Palestine Children's Relief Fund is a registered non-political, non-profit, 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization that was established in 1991 by concerned people in the U.S. to address the medical and humanitarian crisis facing Palestinian youths in the Middle East.

Target demographics: provide sick and injured kids with the specialized surgery, humanitarian aid and medical care that isn't available to them locally.

Direct beneficiaries per year: 8,000 Palestinian, Syrian, Jordanian, Iraqi and Lebanese children get the humanitarian aid and care that they needed.

Geographic areas served: Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Jordan

Programs: Free medical treatment for injured and sick children from the middle east, providing medical and humanitarian services to thousands of children annually, regardless of religion, nationality, or race. The PCRF is working to build pediatric oncology departments at local hospitals in the West Bank and Gaza Strip to care for children with cancer. We also arrange 130 volunteer medical missions from all over the world to provide free care for sick and injured children in their local hospitals, free of charge. We also send dozens of children abroad for free care each year.

My review of PCRF as a follower and lately a volunteer might be biased because of my extra ordinarily satisfying personal experience. My volunteer work with PCRF allowed me to see in person the enormous positive life changing effect their good work has on children. I was a fan way before I started volunteering. Now, I am a believer.

I have visited PCRFs first Cancer department for children in Palestine first hand to see the amazing work done to help these sick children. I have seen children come to the US and then return home after life changing surgery.

I had the privilege of serving many sick and injured children, from Palestine, Syria and Jordan, who couldn’t afford medical treatment in their homeland, through volunteering with The PCRF in Dubai. The transparency, commitment and love shown from everyone involved in running the organization, made not only me, but all the parties I worked with, individuals and corporates, want to give more as we were able to witness firsthand, how the donations were being used in the most efficient and transparent manner. PCRF has changed the lives of many children in the Middle East and I am humbled to have been part of it.

tgis organization is definitely a life changing one, for the recipients of the service, the volunteers and for donors. I don't have much faith in many organizations, except for this one. I've now made it a point to include some sort of PCRF benefit when I can by garnering donations from everyone I know. It's run by fantastic, ethical and selfless people and all the volunteers are the same. Every organization that exists should take a look at the PCRF and emulate its structure as much as possible.

PCRF is the best humanitarian charity out there. As a volunteer, I met several of the children that have been helped by the PCRF.. I have seen the selfless devotion and sacrifices of the doctors, and the impact of their work directly. Exery dollar donated is used most efficiently to the care of the children. I'm a supporter for life!

I am an anesthesiologist from United States. I have worked on nineteen PCRF surgical teams, serving children and adults in Gaza, the West Bank and refugee camps in Lebanon. The teams are lean: one or more surgeons, an anesthesiologist, as many as two nurses. This is possible because we are very well supported by the network of PCRF social workers and program managers. PCRF provides vital specialty surgery (urology, neurosurgery, plastic surgery, hand and orthopaedic care) and does so in a cost effective manner. In this photo we are taking down a dressing on a child who had hand surgery three days previously.

Palestine Children's Relief Fund is an incredible organization that I have been fortunate to volunteer with for about 3 years now. As a physician on medical missions with them, I find them extremely skilled at locating and accessing children across the middle east with the greatest needs, organizing an approach to provide services to them, fundraising on a grassroots level to avoid the conflicts of governmental funds, and being both transparent and incredibly efficient in their use of those funds. I strongly recommend them as an NGO for any healthcare provider, donor, or community organizer to donate their time and/or money to.

I have seen first hand the impact on the overall wellbeing and confidence that Pcrf has had on the children they have treated. Scars of trauma are a hindrance to the development of children, which are often not very costly to treat. But with the limited resources that these families have - the help of charities such as th Pcrf does a long way in changing their lives. Pcrf is a wonderful charity whose dedication of its staff and volunteers has affected the lives of thousands of children in the Middle East for the better !

What's beautiful about the PCRF.. is that the team works with such heart and soul. They've been around for a while, but have NEVER lost their passion and commitment to healing those precious tiny humans. They've made their approach powerfully personal.. I feel so connected to the children I'm supporting when I receive video updates of how they're progressing. I can not recommend a better and purer organization than this one. Utmost gratitude to all of you at the PCRF.

We are the first and the only INGOs in bring specialized medical missions to Palestine and the refugee camps in Lebanon in order to conduct operations free of charge for children. For me working over 20 years at PCRF is an honor, I wish more success and thanks for all our volunteers from all over the world.

Great organization. Great leadership. Growing steadily and fast. Very transparent when it comes to financials and results. Drives to make a difference in the children lives who are in need of medical attention. Check to see if you have a local chapter nearby to support their efforts.
