BENEFITING: INTERNATIONAL CHILDRENS HEART FOUNDATION
Help BabyHeart Heal More Broken Hearts!
International Children's Heart Foundation (ICHF) sends volunteer medical teams as well as donated equipment and supplies to developing countries around the world to provide life-saving surgeries to children, while providing education and training to the local staff. The #1 goal of ICHF is to create independent pediatric cardiac surgical programs capable of caring for the majority of children in those countries with congenital and acquired heart defects. To date, ICHF has completed over 7,800 surgeries in over 34 countries!
Here's how you can help! The number of patients helped by team BabyHeart is limited by the amount of funds we are able to raise each year. In 2016, we completed 130 surgeries. We would like to give that number a boost in 2017. With your help, we can do this! The cost of 1 child's surgery is USD $3,500, so this means that for every $3,500 raised, an additional surgery can be funded, and an additional life can be changed. Lives like that of 4-year old Rollin. He was diagnosed with a heart defect at just 16-days old, and needed surgery if he was ever to have a healthy and active life. Since he was able to have surgery, he has become more confident and active, and has the energy to play like all of his friends. This would not have been possible without the support of people like you. Help us to continue to bring hope to even more children like Rollin in 2017! Every dollar counts and will go towards the cost of life-saving surgeries - the more money raised = more surgeries.
Be a hero, and help team BabyHeart continue making a difference in the lives of children in need. You can help bring hope to life!
