Children Shouldn't Have to Die Because of Where They are Born...

Russian children with rare, often deadly, diseases have no one to turn to for help.
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 Russian children with rare diseases before it's too late.

Rare diseases affect a small percentage of the population making treatment options very limited, especially in Russia. About 30% of children with rare diseases die before the age of five. RACF saves 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 through RACF’s life changing and lifesaving programs.

RACF is recognized for its transparency with a 2024 Platinum Seal, the newest and highest level of recognition by Candid/GuideStar Nonprofit.

Candid/GuideStar is the world’s largest source of information on nonprofit organizations. More than 8 million visitors per year and a network of 200+ partners use Candid/GuideStar data to grow support for nonprofits.

In order to qualify for the 2024 Platinum Seal, RACF shared important information with the public using its profile on www.candid.org.
