The Ray Tye Medical Aid Foundation cherishes the partnership we formed with WPP in 2009, because working together we have been able to save numerous children’s lives. Due to WPP’s committed, long term follow up with patients, we have seen many children not only survive but thrive following surgical treatments. Parents are also very much part of the WPP family and they are provided housing and support while their children undergo life-saving care.

The World Pediatric Project, with locations in Richmond, VA and St. Louis, MO provides life-saving care for children from Eastern Caribbean Islands and Central America. They care for patients in their own facilities and also send teams of pediatric specialists and nurses directly to the patients where they live. These dedicated professionals donate their time, and travel during their own vacations, to care for children who would have no access to medical treatment and surgery without intervention by WPP. Because of their concentration in specific areas of the world, WPP is able to provide follow-up care to each child until the age of 21.
