My first two weeks at The Global Fund for Children have been a whirlwind of learning more about the great work of the GFC team. I've always admired this organization, and it's thrilling to see firsthand how it all comes together. This impressive team has been busy, and I want to share some highlights with you here.
I’m proud to join this wonderful group, and in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I offer my thanks to you for being a GFC champion. Together, we're empowering children to live better lives with brighter futures.
With gratitude for your support and best wishes for a joyful holiday,
John Hecklinger, President and CEO

Meet the Children You Have Helped
The little girl pictured on our homepage is Flona, a six-year-old Syrian refugee who’s as resilient as she is adorable. In the coming weeks, we’ll be sharing more about Flona and other children whose lives were transformed by your support. These stories also highlight our grassroots partners working right alongside the children, helping them grow and thrive. Stay tuned!
Flona’s story is full of hope, but countless other children don’t have champions like GFC and its grassroots partners for relief and support. With your help, we can care for and connect a forgotten child with a future of possibilities. Make a year-end gift now.
