Welcome to The Ruel Foundation

The Ruel Foundation is a faith based, humanitarian organisation that provides free medical aid to children with physical deformities such as cleft lip and palate in developing nations. Surgeries are done in the child's own nation by local surgeons. For as little as $US375 a child can receive corrective surgery for a cleft lip or palate from surgeons in the Philippines and Fiji

We also run a fifty bed children's crisis centre for small children living in poverty and in life threatening situations such as starvation, physical abuse or abandonment.

Our commitment to the physical and spiritual welfare of children living in poverty with physical disabilities in developing nations is not only changing lives but changing communities. Children are now recovering their self esteem, going back to school, getting an education, daring to dream of being a pilot, fireman, nurse or teacher.

The Ruel Foundation is a fully registered Charitable Trust in New Zealand (CC11212) and the USA (501c3).

Success Story

Little Mr J and his sister, Miss P first came to Ruel in Feb 2012, both had a cleft lip and palate. Mr J was only 5 weeks old and his sister, 13 months.

Miss P was able to have surgery on her lip soon after, but Mr J was unwell with a cough and a fever and so failed the pre-operation check up.His parents were so disappointed he could not be operated on. The father is a farm hand who is often out of work. His average income is only US $49 per month.

They have six children so there is no way he could afford to have his children operated on.
They were delighted when we assured them that we would find sponsorship for Mr J so that he could still have his operation.

Mr J’s day came for his cleft lip surgery when we did the February Surgical Outreach this year. What joy for his parents to have both his and his sister's cleft lip operations completed and sponsored by people who live thousands of miles away, but show their love and compassion in such a real way.

 He and his sister will have to come back for their palate operation’s and need further sponsorship for these.
