This past January and February, before the pandemic hit the United States in March, we were able to send 6 medical teams to Bolivia, Ethiopia and Colombia. These teams specialized in pediatric facial plastic reconstruction surgery, cleft lip and palate surgery, microtia surgery and a dental team. Additionally, 2 speech and language pathology teams accompanied some of our surgical teams.
Through our three programs, MEDICAL TEAMS ABROAD, INTERNATIONAL INBOUND and DOMESTIC KIDS we were able to impact the lives of over 2,000 children in 2020 both in the United States and abroad.
Since March, Healing the Children Northeast has:
Provided PPE supplies consisting of medical masks, gloves, gowns, surgical caps, and shoe covers to local hospitals in CT and NY along with a site in Peru to support the caregivers in the treatment of COVID patients
Contributed funding to a local children’s food program
Contributed to a program where special needs children receive therapeutic horseback riding activity
Contributed funding to purchase essential supplies for school children that would have otherwise gone without necessary supplies.

The pandemic has affected the lives of kids at home and abroad. When it became necessary for schools to teach remotely and children needed learn from home, it became even more clear that not all students have the same opportunities. Children in disadvantaged areas were often left behind, widening the gap between those who have more and those who have less. Many kids lacked the basic school supplies needed to learn from home.
HTCNE was willing to step up and help out. By making a generous donation of $3000, full sets of basic school supplies were provided to 300 pre-K to third grade students in some of our most disadvantaged schools. There is no doubt that this will help those 300 kids learn and enjoy school and help their teachers do their incredible valuable job-helping the children, especially the children who need our help the most.
This is the mission of HTCNE.
In early September we received a message from former patient Renita of Belize. Renita came through our program in 2017 – 2018 and received surgery and medical treatment in Westchester County New York. She resided in the host home of Stephen and Mary Tracy.
Renita has Spina Bifida and the surgery she received helped her to be able to walk and ride a bicycle. Her recent message updated us on the recent hurricane and a brief medical update. She has asked for assistance in providing her with a new pair of shoes and new leg / foot braces. We are working on the details of helping Renita receive what she needs.
If you would like to help Renita or children like her, please call our office at
860-355-1828 or donate through our website.
