World Pediatric Project believes that where you live should not determine IF you live. The daunting statistic that 90% of children in the world have access to only 10% of the world’s medical resources is what motivates us to act. World Pediatric Project is a local nonprofit that exists to bridge the gap for critically ill children by connecting them to livesaving medical care so that all children can live full and productive lives.
Last year, World Pediatric Project brought 50 children from Central America and the Caribbean to St. Louis to receive lifesaving medical care donated by its partner hospitals: Shriners Hospital, Cardinal Glennon, St. Louis Children’s Hospital and Mercy Children’s Hospital. Additionally, the organization sent 46 diagnostic and surgical teams to its partner countries and mobilized $14 million dollars in medical services and supplies donated in-kind. The organization also funds preventative dental services for 400 Missouri kids each year who lack access to dental care.

Stray Rescue’s sole purpose is to rescue stray animals in need of medical attention, restore them to health, and place them in loving adoptive homes. Virtually all of the pets they save have been abused and neglected. They’ve been dumped on highways, or remote country roads. Abandoned in public parks, empty houses and dark alleys. They’ve even saved dogs left chained behind buildings after their owners had moved away.
Rescued animals often make the best pets. As a no-kill organization, pets from Stray Rescue seem to understand that they have a second lease on life. In return for a little affection and attention, these remarkable animals reward their new owners with a love and loyalty unmatched anywhere.
The APA Adoption Center is an independent not-for-profit organization. They are not a branch of any other animal welfare organization and don’t receive any funding from government sources.
The APA takes in over 3,000 animals annually. Between their veterinary clinic and shelter, they handle nearly 10,000 animals each year. The daily numbers vary due to the season, but they house around 300 animals at one time. Their adoption counselors can always help find the right pet for you.
For more information, please contact APA’s adoption desk at 314.645.4610 ext. 110.

Friends of Kids with Cancer has a proud 24-year history exclusively in St. Louis of helping kids with cancer…be kids. Fighting cancer is tough for everyone, but for a child with so little life experiences, as well as the social and emotional handicaps that accompany their treatment, make it extremely trying.
Friends cultivates mental well being with programs that help children and their families fighting cancer, cope with the daily challenges they face, make the best out of the situation they are in, and most importantly, remember that they will not be robbed of their childhood.
The St. Patrick Center is one of Missouri’s largest providers of housing, employment and health opportunities for people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.

Their mission is to help individuals and families move from homelessness to independence in dignified, cost-effective and permanent ways.
This approach transforms the people in need as well as the entire community.
The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay.
Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. On top of that, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
Autism Speaks has grown into the world’s leading autism science and advocacy organization, dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism; increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders; and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families.
