Child-help started from the solidarity between people confronted with spina bifida in Belgium and their companions in the South. They feel involved because they know how complex it is to take care of a child with a birth defect and to guide it to a full and independent life.
Child-Help is an active part of the IF-platform for international solidarity within the bosom of IF, the world organisation for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus (http://www.ifglobal.org).
IF has the consultative status with the United Nations and works together with WHO, Unicef, FFI (flour fortification initiative) and many other associations.
Child-Help and IF are involved in the platform PUSH!
