THE STORY:

Every 30 seconds a child is born with a congenital heart diseas. Surgeons of Hope sends volunteer medical teams on life-saving missions to provide heart surgery for the children of Latin America. Surgical procedures that are commonplace in the developed world are out of reach to poor countries.

Challenge:

For the world's poor children, a heart defect is a death sentence. In Nicaragua today, 1,000 children need cardiac surgery. Surgeons of Hope is helping the second poorest country of the Western Hemisphere, Nicaragua, where the leading cause of death among children is heart-related. We are operating, training, and providing a new, modern Heart Center.

 Long-term project: In addition to delivering surgery, Surgeons of Hope provides training to the medical professionals in modern surgical techniques and provides equipment and supplies to continue the work after our team leaves.
