One of the most wonderful things you can do for a child in need of corrective or life-saving
surgery is to refer them to MKI.
Our team here meets every 4 weeks to determine eligibility for surgical treatment, and we try to
accommodate as many children as we can.
If you have a child under the age of 16 currently living outside of the United States that needs
corrective surgical treatment, please complete and submit the application below with all required documents.
You can submit an application one of these 3 WAYS:
1. E-mail the completed application and documents to
2. Send by Fax to 818-843-6365
3. Mail the completed application and documents to:
Mending Kids International
2307 W Olive Avenue
Burbank, CA 91505
MKI is unable to provide diagnostic treatment, and therefore, a surgical recommendation is required for consideration.
It is outside the current scope of our mission to accept children with cancer, or those needing organ transplants.
It is important that the whole package outlined in the application be completed BEFORE it is submitted. Incomplete applications cannot be reviewed.
If you fill the spaces in completely on the application, it is easier for us to learn how we can help.
Once you apply, please stay in touch. Sometimes it takes months to get a response from hospitals or doctors regarding your child’s treatment eligibility. We also have many children on our waiting list for consideration. Please follow up with us if you have not heard anything from us after a month or two. You can send any inquiries to .
We look forward to hearing from you.
