The Caribbean Foundation for Children, Inc.'s mission is to champion all causes
related to children with a specific emphasis on education, medical and housing.
For the past 15 years, we have been helping families with sick children bring their
child to America for medical attention. We provided a place to stay when they were
visiting doctors, provided hearing aids when they could not afford them and provided
scholarships to schools in America.

We are convinced that Jonathan’s life was speared for the higher purpose of helping
other families not lose their children to sickness because limited finances restrict

a second opinion on a medical condition.
