Denville, NJ (Law Firm Newswire) September 8, 2020 – For over 20 years, Elissa Montanti’s incredible organization, The Global Medical Relief Fund, has been providing medical treatment, transportation, lodging and rehabilitation in the United States for amputee and severely injured children from around the world.
Elissa, has been featured on 60-Minutes and CNN Heroes, partners with Shriners Hospitals for Children https://www.shrinershospitalsforchildren.org/shc, and others, to provide surgery or prosthetics for free.
The Global Medical Relief Fund (GMRF) helps children who are missing or have lost the use of limbs or eyes, or have been severely burned, or injured due to war, natural disaster or illness.
The GMRF was created in 1997 by one person working out of a small apartment on Staten Island, New York. Since then, GMRF, along with partners, doctors, nurses, hospitals and community volunteers, have worked for 20 years helping more than 375 hopeless children. Many of the children are amputees and burn victims, or victims of war, violent acts or natural disasters, who have little or no medical resources.
We continue to provide children from America and countries worldwide, with vital medical care and on-going treatment so that they can eventually heal and return home to grow up and become thriving members of their own cities, towns, communities and countries.
What higher mission is there than aiding innocent, victimized children?
