Founded in 1991, the Foundation for the Children of Iran (FCI) helps arrange life altering treatment for Iranian children.

Using a worldwide network of volunteers, including world-renown doctors willing to work on a pro-bono basis as well as incredibly generous donors, FCI provides services to as many children as possible who would otherwise face death or diminished quality of life.

FCI is a registered charity based in Bloomington, Minnesota and incorporated under the 501(c)(3) rules of the U.S. Internal Revenue Service.



The Mission of The Foundation for Children of Iran is to arrange for the provision of health care services to Iranian children or children of Iranian origin. FCI is focused on the provision of heath care services that will cause a discernible improvement in the quality of life as well as life expectancy for these children.

FCI recognizes that through an organized effort to help children, one ensures a better future and more respectful relations between different peoples of the world. FCI will assist the families of the children in order to create an optimum recovery environment.

FCI will focus on services that are not available in Iran. The purpose of FCI is to help Iranian children regardless of race, color, creed, religious or political affiliation.
