World Forgotten Children Foundation (WFCF) has been supporting the health and welfare needs of children with disabilities living in developing countries since 2003, with a recently expanded mission to include projects that aid communities that these children live in as well as underdeveloped communities around the world. This is because WFCF believes that when a community is sustainable and develops the toolkit that would allow it to thrive, everyone in that community benefits.
As a private non-profit organization, WFCF is committed to solely providing and supporting projects that focus on orphaned children with disabilities that reside in developing countries.
WFCF focuses on two main project avenues. First, WFCF started as a resource to children with disabilities worldwide and has funded a number of projects that aim to further the wellbeing of orphaned children with disabilities. Some of these projects include building a playground in South Sudan with The Power of Play, funding the purchase of new medical equipment with the International China Concern organization, and working on the “Baby Box” facility with the Jusarang Community Church in South Korea. You can read more about our projects with orphaned children with disabilities here!
In addition to that, WFCF is committed to community development. In the fall of 2020, WFCF funded a project to install a solar-powered water system that provides a reliable and safe water source at the Republic of Hope’s Bulangzi Garden and Orchard Complex in Zimba District in Zambia. This project was supported by a partnership with the African Community Project. Read more about this project here!
During the season of giving, WFCF encourages you to visit our “Faces You Can’t Forget” page to learn about all the orphaned children with disabilities who have been beneficiaries of WFCF, thanks to the donations of good-willed people. Our “Faces You Can’t Forget” page gives you a small blurb about the children who have received help and some information about how their life has been bettered by WFCF’s funding. You can donate today and play a part in increasing the number of needy children that have received aid through WFCF.
Finally, WFCF works tirelessly to bring attention to important events and conditions worldwide by posting weekly, relevant blogs. Recent blogs have featured the Syrian refugee crisis,the climate crisis in Africa, the Ebola outbreak, and the impact of inflation on nonprofits. Recently, WFCF interviewed globally recognized writer and disability rights advocate Ben Mattlin as well. Read more blogs here!
We hope you consider donating to WFCF and supporting our mission today and make a difference in the lives of many orphaned children with disabilities.
Happy Holidays from WFCF!
