Children who desperately need your help today.

Critical congenital heart defects, just one of many rare diseases, kills at least 12 of these forgotten children every day.

That’s 4,385 children dying unnecessarily every year. 

That's like the Titanic sinking..

Titanic sinking

Two times... Every year.

These are children that you can help save.

What are congenital heart defects? They are problems with the structure of a child's heart present at birth.

If these children had been operated on as infants, as they are in America, they would be leading normal, healthy lives.

But they were born in another part of the world. 

Their desperate parents watch as they slowly die. All the while hoping and praying for a miracle. Today you have a chance to be that miracle. To be the answer to their prayers. To fight heart disease in children.

This little-known charity is called the Russian American Children's Foundation "RACF" for short and...


It’s the story of generous, compassionate, hard-working Americans... 

Who have the courage to set politics, prejudices, and stereotypes aside... 

To help create a miracle for a child...

Who has no one else to turn to.

Americans who believe in America’s promise that...

"All men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” 

Rights that are universal the world over.

 Americans who believe that...

Children shouldn’t have to die because of where they are born.

Mark Twain

Mark Twain once wrote that... 

“The two most important days in your life are... the day you are born and the day you find out why.”

For you, that day could be today... 

The day you help save a Russian child.

Since no one can predict when a child with a complex heart defect requiring open-heart surgery will be born, RACF has a dynamic new plan to provide an on-call program.

When a baby is born in Russia with a complex defect such as Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, the Russian doctors will contact RACF. If the child can be supported in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit for 7-14 days...

Then an American trained team available within that window of time will fly to Russia. The team will provide or assist in pediatric heart surgery and in the immediate recovery period of 3-6 days.

RACF's goal is to have a team available as many as 4-5 times per year for this lifesaving new program.

Each visit to Russia by RACF's On-Call Neonatal Pediatric Cardiac Surgery Team costs between $14,363 and $33,583.

Your gift in any amount is a tax deductible donation that can help create a miracle for a newborn child.
