In 2006, Dr. Brad Berg traveled to East Africa to formulate his plans for developing an organization focused on children’s health care. Above, Dr. Berg is shown with village leaders in Dunga, Kenya where the first HFC clinic was established
Humanity for Children was incorporated in July 2006 as a non-profit tax exempt organization. Led by pediatrician, Dr. Brad Berg, HFC initially focused on providing medical care to children in the developing world who otherwise would have no access to health care. As a result, most of HFC’s work involved collaborating with community partners to develop health clinics in remote areas of East Africa, including Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda.
Kathryn Morgan is pictured above with children in a remote village near Kirehe, Rwanda. Kathryn now leads our organization from Columbia, Missouri, the new home of Humanity for Children.
For the past few years, the mission and projects of HFC have broadened to include initiatives that are not directly health related, e.g., microfinance projects, establishing church-to-church and school-to-school partnerships, and developing new fair trade concepts. In addition to broadening the mission, the location of Humanity for Children has moved from Seattle, Washington to Columbia, Missouri, located in an area where many HFC volunteers and programs can be found.
Humanity for Children is committed to improving the quality of life of children in remote areas of East Africa through community-based, sustainable initiatives that empower individuals and positively affect health, education, safety, and economic conditions.
