Our Child Sponsor program provides funds to cover basic medical services for our children — cuts, scrapes, bruises, fevers, infections, regular medications, etc. And, local medical professionals continue to be generous in donating their services for the wellbeing of our children.
However, when a child has an extraordinary medical need, it may not be provided through our regular, annual operating budget or donated services in Cozumel.
Emergency hospitalizations, surgeries, hearing aids, etc. are simply not covered in our normal operating budget.
Through our Healthcare Fund, our goal is to have a pool of funds “on hand,” so there are no unnecessary delays in providing the medical treatment that our children need, if and when the occasion arises. Think of it as “funding in advance” for "major medical" coverage.
