Help BabyHeart Heal More Broken Hearts!
As you know, I have been involved with ICHF for almost 14 years. For the last 3 years, I have been working fulltime with the foundation and helping children in need. All the years of training to become a pediatric cardiac surgeon make sense to me when I am on the field. Our kids back home are lucky, if they get sick, they have a doctor right there to help them. The most of the children on this world do not have that luxury. ICHF sends 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!
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!
