In 2019, Children First Foundation will celebrate 20 years of facilitating life changing surgery for disadvantaged children from developing countries.

During this time countless surgeons, doctors, nurses, dentists, orthotists, allied health specialists, volunteers, hospitals and medical centers, donors, schools, service groups, tradies, students, corporates, philanthropic trusts and individuals have partnered with us to help approximately 350 children.

We’re planning a year of celebrations and invite you to mark your calendars and join in the fun.
