Charity Funds Critically Low

CHERUBS' funds are critically low and we are under threat of closing our doors after 22 years. 


CDH is incredibly unfunded as compared to most causes (see below). 


CHERUBS has worked hard to raise money, awareness, research and provide services to 1000's of families.  But we cannot continue without your help.  Even with an 8% overhead, we still cannot meet the needs of the CDH community and services have been cut.  We have made incredible strides in the fight against Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia in the past few years.  Please join us this Sunday, April 30, 2017, in our first (and hopefully not last) CHERUBS CDH Telethon on Facebook.

It takes a lot to run an international charity. Only 1% of our members are able to give back. Our budget is currently only $200,000 to help 6100 families annually and there are so many services that we need to provide but cannot. Every single dollar helps families directly.
