  • Financial Assistance

To reduce the financial burden for disadvantaged families and encourage craniofacial patients to receive adequate care, NCF provides subsidies for medical expenses, preschool education, after-school programs, scholarship for high school and college students, living expenses, and transportation among other things. Since 1989, it has benefited people in more than 35,000 instances.

 

  • Parental Support Groups

A support group composed of parents of craniofacial patients allows parents to form a mutual support network, acquire accurate knowledge, improve parental understanding, and promote good parent-child relationships. Since its establishment in 1989, it has benefited people in more than 70,000 instances.

 

 

  • Therapeutic Groups

NCF's therapeutic group supports craniofacial patients in adapting to their disorder to achieve better treatment results and helps them improve social skill and enhance their self-acceptance and confidence. So far, it has helped patients in more than 10,000 instances.

 

 

  • Lectures

We invite craniofacial specialists and nurses to provide medical staff, patients, and family members with accurate craniofacial medical information and understanding, solve related problems that may occur during treatment, and enhance mutual sharing and communication. So far, there have been more than 8,000 participants.

 

 

  • Children's Camps

NCF organizes yearly summer camps and challenge camps to help child and teenage craniofacial patients increase their self-confidence, learn interpersonal interaction skills. Through adventures, challenges, and sharing craniofacial knowledge, we help them get along with peers who have experienced the same things, reduce the sense of isolation, enhance interpersonal interaction, and receive emotional support. The summer camp is aimed at children from the third to sixth grades, and the challenge camp is held for students in junior high and high school. Since 1995, more than 2,000 children and young people have participated.

  • Public Education

Craniofacial patients are often discriminated against because of their appearance and to the extent of being marginalized in school and life. In order to change the discrimination and unequal treatment of craniofacial patients, NCF has storytelling volunteers and children’s drama troupe visiting schools to educate children the concept of equality and respect to difference. NCF also holds Children’s Literature Award as well as publishing documentaries, short films, and books to educate the public concerning an accurate understanding of craniofacial deformity. The project so far has impacted more than 1.2 million people.
