100% of your donation will help children in need

Founded in 1926, the Russian Children’s Welfare Society (RCWS) is a tax exempt 501 c 3 non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of orphaned and disadvantaged children in Russia. The RCWS on-going projects include: a successful college scholarship program currently supporting 183 students; medical programs such as pediatric maxillofacial surgeries in partnership with the Rusfond for over 200 children annually; assistance to orphanages, rehabilitation centers for children with special needs, schools; and an annual “Yelka” (a Christmas and New Year celebration) in Moscow for over 1,000 disadvantaged children visiting from many areas of Russia, and other programs. 
In response to the epidemic, RCWS established the COVID-19 Russia Relief Fund to help save doctors treating the infected patients and equip hospitals with critically needed protective gear. Thank you for your support!
