Often times, it’s a matter of life and death. We’re working to extend a LEISHLine to families in need of medical financial assistance through a strong partnership with Patient Advocate Foundation and Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters. Together, we’ve established two funds to serve families suffering from various illnesses and challenging life circumstances via our signature program, LEISHLine. Our donors, community and strategic partners are working to help us reach our goal to distribute 30+ small grants in 2017. If you’d like more information on how to help, please email Info@beginagainfoundation.com today.
