BENEFITING: TEAM HEART INCORPORATED
The documentary film "Hearts of Courage," which chronicles the work of Team Heart in Rwanda has recently been released. The film's purpose is raise awareness of the work that this organization is doing and to recruit donations to support the next 5 annual trips to Rwanda.
About Team Heart:
If strep throat goes untreated it expands into the heart and becomes Rheumatic Heart Disease. Team Heart’s mission is to address and prevent this disease. The group travels to King Faisal Hospital in Kigali, Rwanda annually to operate on 16 patients and teach cardiac medicine. The entire staff of medical doctors, nurses and administrative professionals volunteer their time and pay their own way.
Team Heart just completed it’s 6th annual trip out of an initial commitment of 10-12 trips. So the organization is roughly at the half-way mark in terms of establishing a cardiac medical program at King Faisal Hospital. The long term vision is to raise money to build a cardiac medical center to serve East Africa.
