Your donation in action

What happens when you make a donation?


1 Operating on a child costs €12,000 (fixed price). When we raise this amount, we give the GO for the care of a child waiting for surgery.


2 The child is evacuated from his or her country by Aviation Sans Frontières and placed in the care of a volunteer foster family.


3 The patient is then operated on in one of our 13 partner hospitals in France or Switzerland.


4 After about a month's convalescence, he can return home in good health. He will be monitored by our teams for the rest of his life.

Your donation in action

Every donation account

The more of us there are, the more children we can save.

All it takes is 200 donations of €60 to raise the €12,000 needed to finance a child's operation.


20 (€5*) x 600 donors = 1 child operated on

60 (€15*) x 200 donors = 1 child operated on

120 (€30*) x 100 donors = 1 child operated on

1,200 (€318*) x 10 donors = 1 child operated on

*after tax exemption

Every donation counts
