World Pediatric Project

World Pediatric Project was founded in 2001 as International Hospital for Children, with the mission to link worldwide pediatric surgical, diagnostic and preventative resources to heal critically ill children in developing countries. Dr. Julian Metts, in conjunction with the South Richmond Rotary Club, founded the organization after returning from a dental mission trip in which Dr. Metts witnessed many children who were dying due to lack of access to critical medical care which is readily accessible in the United States. On March 1, 2011, International Hospital for Children merged with a nonprofit organization in St. Louis and became World Pediatric Project. Mission: They heal critically ill children and build healthcare capacity in the world. Vision: Every child, regardless of geography, will have access to quality, critical care in order to live a full and productive life. Core Values: Compassion – They treat the children they serve, and their families, with love, empathy and respect. Agile – They are an entrepreneurial, resilient organization, quick to respond to both needs and opportunities in their environment. Relationships – They value long term mutually beneficial and respectful relationships with WPP’s Partners and Stakeholders. Empowerment – They believe in their ability to drive positive change to impact the lives of children; including their ability to help others also recognize that same ability inside of them. Sustainability – They honor the importance of their work by focusing their resources, not just on the present, but on the long-term reliability, repeatability and distribution of their impact HOW THEY HELP - sends surgical and diagnostic teams to provide treatment - develops prevention programs
