Healing the Children
Celebrating 40 Years
The Impact of COVID-19 on our Work
2020 will be a very different year for Healing the Children.
Early in March, we held discussions on how to respond to the escalating impact of coronavirus. Our chapters have all suspended their medical trips abroad through the summer and just a few chapters are assisting inbound children who were already in the US. This has been a very difficult decision for an organization that has provided access to medical care for children in need without interruption for the past 40 years. We remain vigilant in monitoring this situation and are working alongside our medical volunteers and in country partners to consider next steps for fall and the year ahead. HTC is also excited to be promoting our domestic program to help provide medical care, resources and equipment for vulnerable children here in the US. We all hope and dream for the time when this pandemic is over and we are able to fully embrace our mission to help children here and around the world access donated the medical care they need and deserve.
Changing the World...One Child at a Time
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed it's the only thing that ever has.
