Orthopedic Trauma Surgeon, Dr. Brian Mehling, Chairman of Blue Horizon Charitable Foundation, expressed his sincere thanks to everyone who has supported the Blue Horizon Foundation's global philanthropic initiatives: supporting medical centers and clinics for the under privileged, providing medicines vital to basic human survival, performing advanced medical treatments otherwise not accessible to certain geographic regions, and finance research and development in stem cell therapies and cellular regenerative medicine. BHCF also supports children around the world who have been orphaned as a result of disease and/or war. In order to raise awareness of these situations, BHCF produces documentary films that bring much needed attention to the plight of those with limited or no access to healthcare. The provision of these resources to less developed areas enables the medically undeserved to benefit from high quality care and treatment.
