THE STORY:

INTERNATIONAL CHILDRENS HEART FOUNDATION wrote -

Help BabyHeart Heal More Broken Hearts! 

The International Children's Heart Foundation (ICHF) sends volunteer medical teams 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 which are capable of caring for the majority of children in those countries with congenital and acquired heart defects.   We also donate needed equipment and supplies not available in the country in the early phases of the program. To date, ICHF has completed over 7,750 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 will be able to complete 130 surgeries. Our goal for 2017 is to boost that number to 150!  The cost of 1 child's surgery is USD $3,500, which means we need to raise an additional USD $70,000 to cover these additional 20 surgeries.  We can do this with your help!  

Take 9-year old Zephaniah, a proud big brother to two little sisters in Georgetown, Guyana.  He had surgery in September to heal his heart. Because he was able to have the surgery locally in Guyana's first-ever pediatric cardiac program,  his family could be there with him for support and help him recover.  He was even able to get home in time to celebrate his 9th birthday, and can now continue to play with his little sisters. 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 Zephaniah in 2017!

Here is what your donation can provide: 

  • $3,500 - The cost of a heart surgery to save a child's life
  • $1,000 - The cost of airfare for a doctor or nurse to save lives
  • $500 - The cost of two surgical heart patches to heal two hearts
  • $250 - The cost of one surgical heart patch to heal a heart
  • $100 - The cost of medicine for one life-saving surgery
  • $50 - The cost of training materials for the local staff
  • $25 - Your gift combines with others to provide life-saving 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!
