The GMRF is committed to bring hope and help to children who are missing or have lost use of their limbs, have been severely burned, or are otherwise damaged due to the atrocities of war, natural disaster or illness.
The GMRF reaches out both locally and worldwide in search of children in desperate need, with little or no resources to better their condition. We prepare necessary travel documents for both child and guardian, and arrange transportation to the United States, where candidates are fitted with prosthetic limbs and receive medical and/or surgical care. We also provide the patient and his or her guardian room and board for the duration of convalescence.
Since 1997, we have endeavored to give back to children what has been so unfairly taken away. It is often impossible to fully restore the child's physical condition, but with our help they can regain self-sufficiency and optimism for the future.
Not only do these children gain immeasurably from our organization, both physically and mentally, but they also stand as ambassadors for the United States, reflecting our nation's generosity, ingenuity, freedom and opportunity.
We at the GMRF feel that it is our obligation as human beings to commit ourselves wholeheartedly to answering those tiny voices around the world whose faint cries call out for our help.
We are here on Film Annex to bring awareness to our mission through the short documentaries we create. We try our best to capture the children as they arrive from countries all over the world and begin their journey to being whole again!
