Healing the Children Northeast Inc is sponsoring our first “Emergency Response”  Medical Team who will travel to Ukraine to perform corrective surgery on adults and children who have suffered war injuries during 2021 – 2022.

We have a very generous donor who will match 14 donors who generously donate $365.00 ($1.00 a day) for this mission to Ukraine.  All donors will receive an acknowledgement letter showing that their donation is 100% tax deductible.

You can send a check to: HTCNE, 219 Kent Rd, Box 11 New Milford CT 06776 or donate here on our website using the Donate Ukraine button on our home page OR you may call our office (860-355-1828) and we will process your credit card with your credit card information to donate.

Won’t you please help us provide the much needed surgeries
for those who have been injured in war-torn Ukraine?
