Save One Life is a registered nonprofit international organization that offers individuals, families, companies and/or organizations the opportunity to sponsor a child or adult with a bleeding disorder in a developing country.
Save One Life is a nonprofit organization that offers sponsorships directly to individual children or adults with a bleeding disorder in developing countries. Unlike many other child sponsorship programs where sponsor funds are pooled, Save One Life beneficiaries receive money directly from their sponsors, with only a small percentage given to the national or local hemophilia nonprofit organization that registers and cares for them.
Hemophilia is a devastating inherited blood disorder that can still cause severe pain, crippling and even death when untreated. In developing countries there is usually no budget to purchase the blood-clotting medicine needed to sustain life. And for a disorder as rare as hemophilia, governments and social agencies usually cannot help. For under a dollar a day you can sponsor a child or adult with hemophilia.
Save One Life is dedicated to the bleeding disorders community, uses funds carefully and diligently, and has strong personal relationships with the organizations in developing countries(NGOs) that manage our programs. Save One Life acts as a humanitarian bridge to encourage individuals and families in developed countries to engage in and give back to the rest of the world on a personal basis.
More than just charity, Save One Life is also a development tool that helps promote long term care and NGO capacity-building by training, monitoring for progress, and rigid accountability.
Save One Life was founded in 2000 by Laureen A. Kelley, author and President of LA Kelley Communications, and a mother of a child with hemophilia.
