Craniofacial surgery of unparalleled worldwide quality helps us transform children's lives.
We believe everyone should have access to life-saving and life-transforming medical treatment, no matter where they live, no matter their ability to pay.
We have proven over more than a quarter-century that even the very poor can receive excellent medical care.
Founded in 1989 by Kenneth E. Salyer, M.D., the World Craniofacial Foundation is a nonprofit organization that provides:
Transforming Lives. Restoring Hope.
The World Craniofacial Foundation provides help, hope and healing for children with craniofacial abnormalities and their families.
We work tirelessly so that, some day, all people with craniofacial abnormalities will receive transformative care—regardless of geography or socio-economic class.
The WorldCF is the global leader in advocacy for excellent craniofacial patient care, education and research, as well as the primary resource for philanthropic support.
