About Children First Foundation

Children First Foundation has been facilitating life-changing, sometimes life-saving surgery for children from developing countries since 1999. These children and their families are unable to access the surgery required in their own country.

Like all parents, their mums and dads want happy healthy lives for their children and many have spent years searching for help before finding Children First Foundation.

Children First Foundation facilitates surgery and pre-and-post surgical care for a range of congenital and acquired conditions including orthopaedic, craniofacial, burns and plastics, renal and urology cases. The condition must be operable and unable to be treated in the child’s country. The program’s global focus embraces diversity, promotes equality and values compassion.

We don't receive any government funding, and are only able to transform these children’s lives with the wonderful support of our donors and partners and of course our volunteers.
