We help hopeless, resourceless children who are victims of war, natural disasters or other catastrophes, locally and worldwide, by providing care, compassion and access to free medical treatments. -GMRF’s mission.
"Global Medical Relief Fund" or simply called "GMRF" is a non-profit charity which has a mission to help children affected by war, natural disasters and other catastrophes. "GMRF" formed in 1997 and founded by Elissa Montanti has helped hundreds of children who are hopeless and most of them victims of amputees and burn, victims of natural disasters or wars. They not only help children from America but also in 35 other countries and they still continue the treatments until the children were recovered and could return to their homes.

Let us look at some examples of children who are currently undergoing treatment conducted by "GMRF". There are Carlos, Alexi, and Daniel from Nicaragua who will get prosthetics to help them. Carlos is a 15 year old boy who get double amputee on his both legs. He usually moves with a wheelchair and with the help of "GMRF" and its supporters, now he will get an artificial leg. There is also Alexi, a 6 year old boy who was born without his left hand. Not just getting prosthetics forearm, but he also received therapy in order to use it in conjunction with the other arm. And currently he is in stage of final fitting for his prosthetics forearm.

On the other hand, there is Daniel a 16 year old boy who lost his left leg because of a hit and run accident outside his home that caused serious injury, so his left leg had to be amputated. He gets prosthetics for his left leg and his treatment still going on till now. Except the three of them, there is also Jannet from Gambia who had undergone several operations because of the tumor in her face and currently still under treatment. You can follow the progress of their treatment through GMRF's facebook or twitter account or from their website: http://www.gmrfchildren.org/.

It has been proven that the "Global Medical Relief Fund" as non-profit charity is really concerned about the children who need help. They not only helped in the beginning, but also sustainable so eventually the children can return home with their smiles.

With this blog, I also want to congratulate Mr. Francesco Rulli -the founder and president of our beloved bitLanders and its partners like bitCharities, and a chat bot with human touch Querlo- for his award as "THE LIFETIME AMBASSADOR" by "GMRF" in the event. I hope bitLanders could last long and grows not merely as a social media but also played a role as a platform for helping people in need and could be a better place than it is now. I am waiting your other innovations which would give benefits to other people.
Show Your Support to Global Medical Relief Fund (GMRF) as bitLanders User
One of the best innovations of bitLanders is that bitLanders connected with one of the programs which also founded by Francesco Rulli called bitCharities. In addition bitLanders users get the reward for their activity and quality content, they can also donate their earnings through this bitCharities. There are many charities that have joined into bitCharities, and one of them is "Global Medical Relief Fund (GMRF)".

With a few steps above means that every time you have done the activity and get rewarded by bitLanders, then bitLanders will donate some bitMiles on your behalf to your favorite charities as you have previously selected depend on what you did. Activities that I mean here is like opening a treasure box which you can find it at promoted blog on homepage, shopping for your avatar or buying gems, doing your daily quest, etc.

And keep in mind that donations in this way will not reduce your daily earnings or your balance. Sometimes I find bitLanders users who want to turn off this great feature because they think that their earning will be deducted for donate to charity. That is not true, so do not worry.
Share Our Care
I will close this blog with the statements said by the founder of "GMRF", Elissa Montanti in her interview with Tyler Perry. When she asked "How can people find out more about GMRF? And how can people get involved?", she said this:
About getting involved, I sometimes say “share our care,” meaning, I urge you to share our concern for these helpless, often traumatized kids who have no local medical resources. If you “share our care,” then you are already predisposed to learn more and get involved. -Elissa Montanti

I found that her statement is very nice. With we share posts, blog, or news related about "GMRF" and their concern for children who need help, indirectly helped the "Global Medical Relief Fund" grows and more known by the public.
