International Humanitarian Care Medical Sponsorship Program was created to offer financial assistance to patients in need of surgery to survive.
Cancer takes an enormous financial, emotional, and physical toll on individuals and their families. International Humanitarian Care working to decrease the burden that a cancer diagnosis brings, and to increase support for cancer survivors.
The Relief International Humanitarian Care Program gives financial assistance for cancer patients that can be used for medical and non-medical expenses such as utilities, groceries, and transportation costs. These grants bring much-needed relief to those undergoing medical treatment. Patients often must reduce work hours or stop working entirely while in treatment, significantly decreasing their income.
The International Humanitarian Care Relief Program is supported through donations and is an invaluable resource to patients and their families to survive.
The International Humanitarian Care team is able to complete tenth of life saving surgeries last year. Sadly, thousands more patients are in need of help to survive.
As an international organization, our goal is to treat 50% American and 50% foreign children. Of our U.S. patients, 66% are minorities and 99% are children. Many of these patients are children of the working poor who have no insurance at all or their insurance will not cover these procedures. Others are from families who would suffer significant financial hardship if they were to pay for the necessary and costly medical treatment.
Today, approximately 15 percent of Egyptian children are born with pediatric deformities and congenital defects such as cleft palate, missing limbs, and facial deformities. Even more children are affected each year due to disease. Unfortunately, it has become commonplace for insurance companies to label reconstructive procedures to correct these deformities as cosmetic surgery and deny coverage to help these children. The medical and developmental complications that arise from not correcting these conditions can be tremendous.
