Support children with facial differences in Taiwan


Sunshine Social Welfare Foundation will support 300 children with facial difference and their families annually, by addressing their medical, financial, psychosocial and educational concerns through medical information, financial aid for medical interventions not covered by the national health insurance, emotional support and psychological counseling, school re-entry programs and educational programs. Services will be provided throughout Taiwan by our six regional service centers.

Whether facial differences are caused by a congenital or acquired condition, children and their parents are confronted with long term medical issues (diagnosis, treatment, financial cost) and psychosocial issues (coping with reactions from family and strangers, building the child's positive self-image and self-confidence), which can feel overwhelming, and can have an impact on the child's development and the parents' own well-being.


Through professional services and activities such as financial aid, the organization of free medical clinics and information workshops, support groups for parents, play therapy and art therapy for children, school counseling and maintaining an information platform (website) to provide self-help tools and information, children with facial difference and their parents will receive timely information, guidance and support to navigate and deal with the various issues brought about by the condition.

Long-Term Impact

The project will support over 300 children with facial difference and their families annually by giving them the resources, tools and services to help them build the knowledge, skills, confidence and emotional strength to face the medical, psychosocial and education issues related to living with a facial difference.
