A Child in a Medical Emergency Needs Your Voice

Medical emergencies happen without warning, usually leaving families scrambling for funds and desperate for a helping hand. At this very moment, children living in poverty across the globe need serious and urgent medical attention... yet their families can’t afford it.

One of the most heartbreaking examples comes from Ecuador, where a tragic event recently left a young boy covered in third degree burns all over his body and fighting for his life in a hospital bed. Eleven-year-old Steven was innocently playing in his yard when he was suddenly taken by force, tied up, covered in gasoline and set on fire by a group of teenagers. With the help of supporters like you, Steven has started to receive the medical attention he so desperately needs… but a long list of medical bills and additional costs lines his road to recovery.

Incidents like this are incredibly heart-wrenching... yet you can help save the lives of children like Steven. All it takes is five minutes of your time!

You can extend your love for children with your own Act for Medical Emergencies online fundraiser. It’s a perfect way to share your heart for children in need with friends and family. The funds you raise will go directly to giving emergency medical assistance that saves children’s lives!

There are just three easy steps:
