Donate Now

Support Us

Your donation supports medical treatment, transportation, lodging and rehabilitation in the United States for amputee and injured children from the U.S., and around the world.

The Global Medial Relief Fund (GMRF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity recognized by the IRS. All donations are tax-deductible.

Our Federal Tax ID: 13-3987722.

Because young children grow at an average rate of 3/4” (1.9 cm) annually, artificial limbs are replaced approximately every 6-12 months. An example would be, if a 10 year-old child lost a limb, they would likely need 20 prosthetic replacements by the time they reached the age of 21.

GMRF is committed to each child we help until they turn 21, which has led to over a 1200 follow up visits.

About Us

The non-profit, non-partisan Global Medical Relief Fund “Federal Tax ID: 13-3987722” aids children who are missing or have lost the use of limbs or eyes, or have been severely burned, or have been injured due to war, natural disaster or illness.

The Global Medical Relief Fund (GMRF) was originally created in 1997 by one person working out of a small apartment on Staten Island, New York. Since then, we at GMRF, along with partners-in-effort, doctors, nurses, hospitals and community volunteers, have worked for 25 years helping more than 375 hopeless children, many of them amputees and burn victims, or victims of war, violent acts or natural disasters, who have little or no medical resources.

We continue to provide children from America and countries worldwide, with vital medical care and on-going treatment so that they can eventually heal and return home to grow up and become thriving members of their own cities, towns, communities, and countries.
