Healing Children's Hearts

About

Healing children's hearts around the world. Our volunteer medical teams are saving children's lives by performing free heart surgery for children in underdeveloped countries.

Real Life

Ten year old Heidi Hernandez loves dancing and playing with her friends. She could not attend school regularly as she would often get sick and be too tired to walk (and often faint). Heidi was born with a heart defect that prohibited normal blood flow throughout her body. Unfortunately for Heidi, her home country did not have the resources to provide her with the surgery required to save her life. Now, after the 100% volunteer Heart Care International medical team operated on Heidi at a local hospital, she has energy and is able to play with her friends and go to school. Heidi wants to be a doctor when she grows up.

Heart defects are the #1 birth defect in babies, 1 out of 100 children are effected. If you are born in the United States, this defect will be found and fixed, often before the child is 1 years old. In developing countries, children born with heart defects often succumb to the disease because of lack of adequate heart care resources in their country. For 20 years, Heart Care International has travelled to under developed countries to change this outcome. Having saved over 1000 children's lives through complex heart surgeries, and performed non-invasive life-saving procedures on an additional 2500, Heart Care International brings the professional expertise, supplies, medicines and equipment to the host country to make an impact...one child at a time.

For $2500, Heart Care International saves a child's life. Small cost, BIG results! Help us save another child TODAY!
