CHARM relies on the generous support and donations of individuals in order to provide lifesaving and vital surgical and medical procedures for children. Team members work tirelessly and give their time and talent for absolutely no monetary compensation. Funds are directed towards the logistics of the mission, including but not limited to airfare, transportation, lodging, and meals of team members, as well as medical supplies, surgical instruments, and education for the patients and staff of the target mission site. Your donation provides care to real children who would never receive life changing surgical procedures without you and CHARM team members.

**The entire pilot mission trip cost $15,000** In comparison, 1-2 of the surgeries that were performed would have cost the same amount if done in the U.S.
