Children First Foundation is relying on the Australian public to help fund the surgery.  The amount quoted is between $250,000 and $300,000 for the surgery.


We (Children First Foundation) receive no government funding and rely on the generosity of our donors, corporations, trusts and foundations. The Foundation has DGR status, and all donations to the Foundation over $2 are fully tax deductible.


To donate, select Twins 18 as the campaign name.  I am unsure if donations are confined only to Australia or not.

The girls share a liver and they are believed to share part of a bowel but the extent of their combined functions will not be known until the surgery is underway.
