They come to us from around the world.
And we accept them with open arms. Children with complex orthopedic conditions…life-threatening burns, cleft lip and palate…and extreme spinal cord injuries.
So, when we learned that two innocent children from Ukraine, ages 1-1/2 and 2-1/2, had been badly burned and needed help, we knew immediately what we had to do.
We sent Love to the rescue®! The children were removed from their hospital in Ukraine to Poland due to the war, and then flown by air ambulance, with only their moms by their sides, to Shriners Hospitals for Children so they could receive critical care for their severe burns. They arrived just last week! When emergencies arise, it is the compassion of caring people like you that enables Shriners Hospitals for Children to provide life-changing care to children here in the U.S. and around the globe who most urgently need our specialized pediatric care.
