Our Goals

CLI Missions and Medical Teams strive to give the best care with the most impact
to all children in need in developing countries around the world.

Save Children

We perform life-saving and life-changing surgeries and comprehensive medical care across a variety of pediatric disciplines.

Engage Local Medical Teams

We strive to provide continuity of care and develop self-sustaining local medical programs.

Positively Impact Communities & Families

We support local communities to help address the needs that support the whole child.

We are delighted to announce that we will be holding our favorite fundraising event this year – “The Salah M. Hassanein Memorial Day at the Races" – at the Del Mar Racetrack. Please join us on August 28th for lunch, auctions and exciting races! We hope we will see you at the track!

In Memory of
Our Co-Founder and Chairman,
Salah M. Hassanein

Salah's dedication to Children's Lifeline International® for over thirty-five years was nothing short of remarkable and his tireless work and energy to help children in need will forever be an inspiration.

From 'America's Mom,'
Marion Ross:

I believe in the mission of Children’s Lifeline International®. To medically care for children in developing countries around the world. Please take a moment to learn about the great work Children’s Lifeline carries out, serving the needs of the ‘littlest’ among us.
