The Palestine Children's Relief Fund

The Palestine Children's Relief Fund (PCRF) is a non-political, non-profit American relief group that was established in 1991 to address the extraordinary medical and humanitarian crisis facing Palestinian youth in the Middle East. Since then, it has expanded in order to help suffering children from other Middle Eastern countries. PCRF helps to locate cost-free medical care and treatment for children who are unable to obtain the necessary and specialized treatment in their home country. In Iraq, for example, the PCRF works with local NGO's, US military personnel and the Iraqi Ministry of Health, to identify children who were either injured in the current conflict, or who were born with medical disorders that cannot be treated in country. By providing children injured in war, or in need of specialized medical care that they would otherwise not receive, PCRF can help to repair some of the suffering and hardship that these children face on a daily basis.
