Childspring International, a faith-based 501(c)3 nonprofit, grew out of the efforts of medical missionary teams to improve the health conditions of impoverished children in El Salvador in 1985. Overwhelmed by the number of children they were unable to treat, these missionaries sought help from doctors and hospitals in the United States. In 2001, Rose Emily Bermudez, the head of the missions committee at First Presbyterian Church in Atlanta, formally established a nonprofit to address the medical concerns of these children. In 2006, this organization was named Childspring International.
Since its inception, Childspring International has served more than 2,400 children from 42 developing countries through our network of international and domestic medical partnerships.
