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.

PCRF is a well organized charity that helps all kid regardless of religion or origin in the middle east. I have seen the work this charity first hand . Over the years , I met with the doctors that treated kids in the middle east, met with kids who left their families for a long period of time , to come to the states for treatment , which they stay with host family's. Can't express my Feelings what PCRF do for the kids in need. Keep up the great work , will always have my support.

My family has been actively involved with the PCRF chapter in Atlanta since 2011. For the past two years, my son has served as Youth Coordinator for the Atlanta chapter. My family of six has attended PCRF's two well-organized and highly successful fundraising Galas, has helped host children who have traveled to Atlanta to be treated, and have volunteered and attended many of PCRF-Atlanta's activities in the past almost three years.

Not only has it been immeasurably rewarding to see how well monies raised are used, our whole family has learned much about the culture and politics of this region of the world. We have benefited from helping to welcome two children from the West Bank who traveled to Atlanta to receive medical treatment.

PCRF is an organization that truly merits every dollar that is given to support its cause to provide free medical care to youth from the Middle East, without regard to politics, race or religion.

PCRF is an organization that has made a world of difference for children who knew nothing but cruelty of the world around them. The people who make up PCRF are truly selfless humans who have ascended beyond any bias or discrimination to help people who have been ignored by all including by humanity itself.

The kids are nothing short of amazing! They are children, and not patients. When they cry, we comfort them; when they are in pain, we hold them and then when they smile, we smile too. We salute them for their bravery and take pride when they reach their milestones. You cannot help but fall in love.

Prior to my involvement with PCRF, I traveled to the Occupied Territories and Gaza in 2012. I witnessed the grossly inadequate medical facilities there. While in Gaza I saw that the work done by PCRF plays a substantial role in providing medical treatment of children that require surgery. Without PCRF many of the children would not have had the level of treatment that their condition requires.The medical missions (arranged by PCRF), by surgeons from around the world is vital and in many cases the surgery is life saving.
