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.

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.

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.

through the PCRF; I knew I was capable of doing something to those who were in need even though I was not an influential character; a millionaire or a doctor. I was an ordinary person who is capable of adding something of value to lives of others.

I've been following PCR and their amazing work for a while now. I am overwhelmed with the unselfish work they do providing excellent medical care and humanitarian aid for sick and injured children, regardless of nationality or religion. I share their stories with family and friends every chance I get. PCR is a true example of the humanity each of us should have.

PCRF is the premier organization providing medical care to the children of the Middle East. The organization and grass roots funding for pcrf is phenomenal. I have served on medical missions with the organization, and I am a member of the Chicago chapter. I love everything about PCRF, and I am honored to be a part of such an extraordinary organization!

Before I started volunteering for the PCRF I didn't believe in Humanitarian organizations. The PCRF has changed my life completely. Their only goal is to help provide care and heal every child in the Middle East. I have seen children's life change for the better
Please continue to support this amazing organization

I became involved with PCRF when I was in university, and have been involved for years now. It is a great organization to support because it has local chapters across the world, meaning that it not only has a grassroots component, but that anyone can join. It is a great way to become familiar with your local community while making the world a better place. PCRF is an honest organization that has received 4 stars from Charity Navigator for years due to the fact that your money actually goes to what you donate it to: their mission to help sick kids in the Middle East. It is my favorite charity hands down.

Whenever a friend of mine is in a charitable mood and asks for a recommendation of a worthy recipient, I always respond with four letters- PCRF. They are transparent, efficient, friendly, and do great work. They always provide updates on how your contributions are being used, and make you feel connected and inspired in their actions- helping children!

Life changing charity to many kids in need. Regardless of their race, religion, nationality or age PCRF is dedicated to help children that are either a victim of war or born with a congenital disease , deformity or illness . PCRF changed so many kids lives to the better and will continue to do so. It was very touching to me to see what they have done so far and it was a life changing experianceً.
