That’s half a century of working to make the world a better place!

Through Children First, wonderful people like you and Simon support the most vulnerable children in the world, who cannot get the medical care they need in their own country and desperately need help.

Children First treats children in the child’s home country (where possible) or brings them here to Melbourne, when the surgery is really complex.

Your gifts also help to build medical capacity in-country to ensure other kids won’t have the same barriers to safe surgery and healthcare in generations to come.

Simon shares: “I’m passionate about changing the world for children who are suffering through no fault of their own. I want to help as many children as possible to have a better quality of life – one where they are no longer in pain, and can achieve their full potential.

I’m fortunate to have so much, so on my birthday, I just want to give to others. It’s a great chance to share the amazing change that people can make in children’s lives through Children First. If I can let more people know how they can help kids in need, why wouldn’t I take this opportunity? I know my friends and family are such great people, so I’m excited to see what we can achieve together!”

Thank you, Simon, for your compassion and care for children in need …

… and thank YOU for celebrating Simon with your gift!
