For 30 years, the Children’s Burn Foundation has provided care to children with severe burns, who, because of a lack of financial resources and/or medical insurance, cannot otherwise benefit from state-of-the-art medical treatment and much-needed post-acute services.
In the years since its founding, the organization’s mission has grown beyond funding of reconstructive surgery for children with severe burns to include services supporting the short-term emergency needs of families, as well as fire safety and burn prevention education programs for children, parents and other caregivers. In 2006, Children’s Burn Foundation began a program, in partnership with the American Burn Association, to provide burn care education and training at teaching hospitals in developing countries.
The mission of Children’s Burn Foundation is: to prevent the pain and trauma of burn injuries to children, and; To heal and give children who have suffered severe burns the opportunity to reach their full potential, physically, psychologically and socially.
The Foundation provides for the treatment of burned children locally, nationally and internationally.
