The Children’s Burn Foundation is an American non-profit organization founded in 1985 to meet the physical, psychological and financial needs of children who have been severely burned. Located in Sherman Oaks, California, they were founded by Dr. A. Richard Grossman and McLean Stevenson.[1][2][3] One notable child supported by the Children's Burn Foundation is Youssif (burn victim), a young Iraqi boy set on fire by masked men outside of his Baghdad home in 2007.[4][5]
