Child for Life Fund - St.John's Hospital

Our Mission

To provide emergency, life saving care, for children from underprivileged backgrounds.

By contributing to this fund, you are literally giving a child the opportunity to live a full life.

What is CFL?

Way back in 1998, a young couple admitted their child for treatment at St. John’s Hospital. They saw firsthand the struggle of underprivileged families in providing for the treatment of their critically ill children. This enterprising couple came forth and in partnership with the department of Pediatrics started the ‘Child for Life (CFL)’ fund.

The fund provides for life saving medical and surgical treatment for children coming from poor families. Funded mainly through contributions from caring individuals and groups, we are now 20 years old and have had the privilege of assisting over 1000 children suffering from life threatening but curable diseases.

The fund is administered solely by the faculty of the Department of Pediatrics and emergency care is initiated as soon as it is needed.

Over the years, CFL funds have been used to treat children across all ages, with respiratory, gastrointestinal and surgical problems. Without CFL, many of these children would have probably succumbed to these illnesses simply because the family could not undertake the expenditure involved in treating them.

Through CFL, we try to give every child what he or she deserves - The Right To Live! Come join hands with us. You can help make it happen.
