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., 1936-2020, the World Craniofacial Foundation is a nonprofit organization that provides:


  • Access to innovative surgical care  for children and adults with abnormalities of the head and/or face.
  • Emotional support to patients and their families
  • Funding (cash or in-kind gifts) for transportation, lodging, meals and ancillary needs of patients and their families as they pursue treatment
  • Funding/fellowship programs for physicians undergoing advanced craniofacial training
  • Education about craniofacial abnormalities and treatment to patients, their families, government agencies, insurance companies, physicians in training and the public
  • Support for and distribution of craniofacial research to the medical community, government agencies, insurance companies, patients and their families
  • Advocacy for superb craniofacial patient care worldwide
