About GMRF

The non-profit, non-partisan Global Medical Relief Fund “Federal Tax ID: 13-3987722″ aids children who are missing or have lost the use of limbs or eyes, or have been severely burned, or have been injured due to war, natural disaster or illness.

Since its founding in 1997, GMRF has brought more than 100 children to the U.S. from Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia for treatments, surgeries and prosthetic limb and eye fittings. What higher mission is there than aiding innocent, victimized children?

About Our Founder

A child’s plea for help asking for “God and all merciful people to help me getting prosthetics” forever changed Elissa Montanti’s thinking and her mission in life.
