Children First Foundation

Children First Foundation believes all children should have access to medical treatment, regardless of where they are born.

Children First Foundation has been facilitating life-changing, sometimes life-saving surgery for children from developing countries since 1999.

Children First's Miracle sMiles Program helps children from Australasian, Asian, African and Middle-Eastern regions. The programs global focus embraces diversity, promotes equality and values compassion.

Miracle sMiles 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.

Our staff and volunteers provide a holistic model of care: we call it end to end care, because the children receive consistent care from one team in one location from arrival until they return home. Holistic care recognises the child's emotional, cultural and physical needs whilst they're in our care.

We achieve extraordinary outcomes for the children through collaboration with exceptional Australian surgeons and health professionals.

Although we receive incredible pro-bono support from surgeons, health professionals and hospitals, the financial demands on the Foundation are immense. With no government funding it is only through the generosity of individuals, businesses, Trusts and Foundations and Community Groups that we can provide life-changing surgery and post operative care and rehabilitation for these disadvantaged children.

With your support we can create miracles for these children and return them home happier, healthier and with hope for the future.
