The Children’s Medical Foundation of Central and Eastern Europe

Our Mission

The Children’s Medical Foundation of Central and Eastern Europe (CMF) is dedicated to improving the lives of children in Central and Eastern Europe by providing desperately needed funding to well-managed yet under-funded hospitals of the region. 

Foundation Goals

We would like to invite you to be a part of our exciting Foundation which will help children all over Central and Eastern Europe recover from their illnesses to become healthy and strong and to go on to lead normal, productive lives.


Our goals are simple:

  • Raise funds from U.S. and International donors.
  • Keep expenses extremely low.
  • Identify qualifying hospitals in the region.
  • Understand their needs in areas such as technology, equipment and education.
  • Disburse funds through secure channels.
  • Follow up with their successes
  • Sustain the Foundation through high quality management at the Board and Director level.

Our Foundation

CMF will work and support those hospitals which have an excellent reputation, doctors and staff who care and which have the ability to properly use new resources.
