Every $5,000 Provides Life-Saving Surgery for Vulnerable Children
Each year, we receive hundreds of requests from desperate families with infants who have been diagnosed with life-threatening congenital or acquired disorders. Delight relies on kind contributions from generous people like you to save the lives of these children.
Thanks to partnerships DCHRI has established with children's hospitals worldwide, the cost of these life-saving medical procedures are always below market prices. On average, uncomplicated surgeries average about $5,000 per each child, split between direct surgical costs ($3,000) and logistical and post-operation costs (also $2,000).
Sponsorship opportunities start at $10, and all online donations are processed securely via PayPal and bank transfer. The donation process is as follows:
You Sponsor a Child
When you choose to sponsor a specific child, we try and make sure your contribution goes towards saving that child's life. Any extra funds we receive are used to saving the lives of other needy children.
We Deliver the Surgery
Once we have the funds required, the relevant medical procedure is performed at the earliest possible opportunity. The child also receives post-surgery support to facilitate complete recovery.
We Keep You Updated
You may opt into our regular child-specifc updates on recovery progress. Donors may also correspond directly with the child's family or even ask us to arrange an individual or group visit.
