    Children in Russia with rare, often deadly, diseases
    have no one to turn to for help...

    But you.

    Help make a miracle happen for these children.

    Help them get the groundbreaking American medical care
    that will change their lives forever!

    The Russian American Children’s Foundation (RACF), founded in 2012 as Rusfond USA, is a U.S. based children's charity that helps children in Russia with rare, often deadly, diseases before it's too late. 

    Many rare diseases appear early in life.

    About 30% of children with rare diseases die before kindergarten.

    RACF needs your help to save these children’s lives by providing the advanced medical care they need. Children who would be disabled...  Now function as other typically developing boys and girls. Children facing death now live.

    Families are forever grateful... Because their children have new lives thanks to you.

    BE A MIRACLE MAKING CHAMPION - before it's too late

    We've heard their heart-breaking stories...

    A boy born with half a heart.

    A girl born without ears.

    A child going blind.

    Conditions occurring randomly with no known cause.

    They all have a chance to live a normal life if they can get groundbreaking American medical care in time.

    When a mother and father suddenly discover that their child suffers from a very rare, life-threatening condition, their only hope is to bring their child to America for advanced medical care.

    You can help make a miracle happen.

    These children need complex surgery, state-of-the-art diagnostic testing, financial assistance with travel and hospital stays. The challenges they face are daunting.

    You can help RACF be there for them every step of the way from finding leading specialists, negotiating hospital fees, helping to obtain U.S. visas to arranging flights, housing, interpreters, and other logistics within the United States. Children suffering from rare diseases often have to endure long days, weeks, even months of medical treatment before they can fully recover.

    Each step forward brings them closer and closer to the miracle for which they are praying.

    Your can help be the answer to their prayers. 

    Help make a miracle for these families today. They have nowhere else to turn.
