Hi my name is *Tony and I am here to tell
you a little bit about an organization that means a lot to me, the International Children's Medical
Founded by Ms. Ruha'mah Stadtlander,
ICMF is an International Public Charity, an all volunteer,
non-profit (501-c-3), free standing, educational and consulting organization dedicated to enhancing the
quality of life and well-being of the citizens of "yet developing" countries around the world.
The International Children's Medical
Foundation brings children to the United States for medical care
that cannot be obtained in their home countries. The children we help are afflicted with maladies such as heart,
orthopedic, spina bifida, and hydrocephalic, etc. Though a small organization, in 1993 four children were brought
to the U.S. for medical care. In 1994 word had spread and we began receiving cries for help from parents all
around the world. We expanded our borders and began seeking help for children outside of the U.S. That
year eleven children received life saving medical care. By 1995 the number rose to
sixteen. Each subsequent year the number has grown!
All medical care rendered in the U.S. is done
at no cost to the U.S. taxpayer.
ICMF lso organizes volunteer specilized medical teams (i.e., Plastic
Surgeons) that travel to various countries multiple times a year performing craniofacial reconstruction,
specializing in cleft palate/lip cases, operating on both children and adults. ICMF operates on the good will of volunteer doctors, nurses, office staff and donations in
the area of grants, private finances, equipment and various Partner Fund Raising
ICMF provides assistance FREE of charge to all patients without reference to
ethnic, political or religious associations. Won't you please help
ICMF "Make a Difference ~ Give Hope" in the lives of the medically needy
children of our world?

ICMF is currently in the midst of
a Partner Fund
Raising Project to meet our ongoing financial needs
for the next fiscal year. ICMF, like so many of our neighbors in the Gulf
Coast suffered greatly as a result of Hurricane Katrina. And, like so many others, ICMF is still in
Ongoing project funds are most urgently needed for a new
U.S. office as well as handicap accessible remodeling of a recently acquired residential facility.
ICMF has plans to build clinics abroad, together with operating rooms
and quarters for medically handicapped children needing 24 hour care. These facilities would be located,
where needed, in various "yet developing" countries of our world.
ICMF is in need of Doctors, Nurses and Anesthetists
and U.S. Host
Families. Please take time to
read the Doctors - Nurses
Information which has detailed information.
The Project International Participation Agreement file should be printed, filled out, signed by an interested participant and mailed to our U.S.
A NEW OFFICE AND RESIDENTIAL FACILITY ARE
Our needs dictate that we acquire
another U.S. based Office as well as a Residential Facility. Due to the fact that many of our children come
from tropical regions we are hoping to acquire this facility in one of the southern regions of the
U.S. This facility will used as a future "transient house" for children coming into the U.S. who need a
temporary place to stay while on their way to other parts of the U.S. to receive their medical
attention. The facility will also be used to house those children who need to
stay in the U.S. for an extended period of time during recuperation and/or
special therapy prior to returning to their home country. ICMFwill staff this facility
with Live-In Staff
Volunteers to care for our children. Perhaps
"you" know of someone that is in the position to donate, in whole or in part, such a facility and would be
willing to take their donation off as a tax exemption.
OTHER URGENT NEEDS
We urgently need volunteer(s) to make a
mini advertising video for ICMF. We are also in need of a slide projector, (2) new laptops w/4 in one
fax/copy/printer scanner machines, and a wheel chair lift
