Program History:

Childspring International grew out of an effort that was originally focused on improving the living conditions at orphanages in El Salvador by providing free medical and dental care, medical supplies for the local hospitals, and surgical mission teams. Soon, requests for advanced medical care for children with deformities and diseases beyond the capability of local treatment were received. As a result, Children’s Cross Cultural Connection was founded as a non-profit 501(c) (3) organization in 2001.

Children’s Cross Cultural Connection USA was renamed Childspring International. Childspring International operates under the same Executive Director, Board of Directors, Board of Trustees, Board of Advisors, and Staff as Children’s Cross Cultural Connection USA. We have the same office location, focus and goals, though our mission statement has been streamlined. As in the past, our efforts continue to be focused on bringing the children from around the world to the United States for the complex medical treatments that they need but which cannot be provided by their own country’s medical facilities or doctors. American families host the children in their homes; physicians and other health professionals donate their skills and time; hospitals donate their facilities and supplies; and in many cases, airlines provide free transportation. Our success is evident in the faces of the children as they return home with a restored body, a better self image, an opportunity to go to school, and the chance to become accepted and productive members of their community.
