BENEFITING: TEAM HEART INCORPORATED
Our trip annually to Rwanda saves the lives of young patients who would otherwise die for lack of cardiac surgical care to replace the heart valves destroyed by rheumatic heart disease (RHD). In addition, screening for disease not yet life threatening would allow us to provide medical intervention and prevent the progression of disease. We provide training and mentoring for hospital staff, scholarships for specialized training for physicians and nurses. Providing hope for patients and families to rise out of poverty caused by being critically ill for years in heart failure. Returning to productive life is just one aspect of success! Help us help them.
