About the Matilda Children’s Foundation
The Matilda Children’s Foundation was founded in 2003 to provide help and comfort to underprivileged children from around the region who require life-changing surgery and have no other means of receiving care. Matilda International Hospital provides the resources and facilities to enable surgery to take place whilst doctors, surgeons and nurses volunteer their time so that there are only minimal costs. The Foundation has helped improve the quality of life of over 40 children. Every dollar raised goes to the Foundation.
