Miracle Foundation brings life-changing care to orphaned children around the world.

Since our founding on Mother's Day in 2000, the Miracle Foundation has taken a stand for orphaned children. Today there are 8 million children living in institutions around the world. That is unacceptable. Ask any child and they will tell you that their biggest dream is to be part of a loving family - it's where they thrive.

Our "Child First" approach is multi-faceted, collaborative and community-based:
-80% of children living in institutions have a living relative. We make every effort to reunite these children with their birth family, if possible.
-For abandoned children without family - our measurable, systematic method ensures that children are loved, educated, healthy and safe until they transition to a permanent family.
-We actively collaborate with governments, other non-profits and local family-strengthening organizations to transform systems and give children a voice.
