Our Vision

The Meland Foundation is a public charity that provides medical and health information, inspiration and financial support to caregivers, families and children facing serious illness and encouragement and financial support to those medical service providers who are dedicated to helping these families.

Our goal is to work in cooperation with the personal physician, enabling family members to make the best decisions concerning their health on the advice of their physician.

To build hope and provide guidance and motivation to all family members, with a special emphasis on the poor and those in ill health.

To strive to develop the highest potential of all family members.

With a life of service in behalf of others.
