Thank you for your support in 2023

 

We would like to sincerely thank you for your remarkable support throughout 2023. Your generous donations have enabled us to provide vital assistance to children with facial differences and their families, offering them comfort, guidance, and hope as they deal with the physical and emotional impact of an appearance-altering condition.

Here are some of the things we achieved thanks to your donation:

  • Our team of social workers provided consultations to parents of 94 children with facial differences. These consultations were invaluable in assessing the needs of both children and parents, offering immediate emotional support, and addressing any concerns or anxieties regarding medical treatments.
  • Additionally, our social workers extended case management services to 87 children with facial differences and their families, with 60 of these being new clients. Through personalized support and guidance, we were able to assist families in navigating through the challenges they face with strength and resilience.
  • Our dedicated psychological counselors provided essential services to 6 children with facial differences, utilizing play therapy and sand play therapy to help children express themselves and cope with their unique experiences of facial difference.
  • We organized two insightful medical lectures on hemangioma, providing parents with comprehensive information about the disease, treatment options, and avenues for support. These lectures were instrumental in empowering parents with knowledge and understanding.
  • Furthermore, your contributions enabled us to provide pressure garment services to 53 children undergoing treatment for hemangioma or vascular malformation, offering them comfort and relief during their healing journey.
  • We also facilitated 5 online parent support groups, attended by 25 parents, fostering a sense of community and understanding among families facing similar challenges.

Your support has been instrumental in every achievement we've made, and we are profoundly grateful for your kindness and generosity. As we move forward into 2024, we humbly ask for your continued support.

We also encourage you to support us during GlobalGiving’s Little by Little campaign. From April 8 to April 12, eligible donations up to $50 per unique donor per organization will be matched at 50% during the campaign until funds run out. $200,000 is available in Matching Funds for participating projects, so be sure to donate early to ensure that your donation is matched!

Thank you for your kindness and generosity!
