Children First Foundation

Children First imagines a world where every child is able to enjoy a healthy and fulfilling life, regardless of where they are born. We invite you to join us to make a difference in the lives of children in need.

Children First Foundation has been facilitating life-changing, sometimes life-saving surgery for children from developing countries since 1999. These children are among the world's most disadvantaged, born in countries where the complex and often multiple surgeries they need are unavailable.

Like all parents, their mums and dads want happy healthy lives for their children and many have spent years searching for help before finding Children First Foundation.

Children First’s Miracle sMiles program helps children globally. The Miracle sMiles program facilitates surgery and pre-and-post surgical care for a range of congenital and acquired conditions including orthopaedic, craniofacial, burns and plastics, renal and urology cases. The condition must be operable and unable to be treated in the child’s country.

While in Australia they are cared for at our Miracle sMiles Retreat in rural Kilmore by our staff and an amazing team of dedicated volunteers.

We don't receive any government funding, and are only able to transform these children’s lives with the wonderful support of our donors and partners.

Become a "Miracle Worker" by transforming these children's lives and bringing them hope, happiness and health.
