About The Frank Foundation
Frank Foundation Child Assistance International (FFCAI) is a non-profit
organization whose mission is to provide assistance to children throughout
the world. FFCAI undertakes a variety of activities that are guided by two
objectives: delivering immediate relief for children with the greatest need
and sustaining ongoing efforts to eradicate suffering for all children.
This mandate quickly expanded to include numerous cultural, humanitarian and
educational programs that have helped hundreds of children and youth
throughout Russia, Kazakhstan and Georgia.
FFCAI actively encourages governments, public and private organizations and
individuals to commit their energy, resources and expertise to the projects
and activities the foundation undertakes. FFCAI believes that by working
with one child at a time, the otherwise daunting task of trying to save
every child becomes manageable.
