Join us on our journey to give life and hope to desperately ill and desperately poor children with Congenital Heart Disease (CHD). Your donations will help save the lives of some of the poorest children in the world.

Every year 1 million children die from untreated heart defects in the developing parts of the world. Many of these fatalities are easy to prevent such as a simple corrective procedure to fix a hole in a child’s heart. With your contribution our charity can continue to send specialist medical volunteers to operate on these vulnerable children and give hope to their families.

Sanjay – Vijayawada, India Camp, September 2017

How could you not smile back at a happy face like this?! This was Sanjay* three months after his complex heart surgery by our team at Andhra Hospital, Vijayawada, India. He went to see resident consultant cardiologist Dr Vikram Kudumula for a check up.

Sanjay was diagnosed at 2 years of age and his parents spent the next four years taking him to different hospitals hoping and praying that there would be someone who could operate on their precious, very sick little boy but to no avail.

Eventually they took him to Andhra Hospital where they were seen by Dr Vikram who knew our team would be able to help. Sanjay was so proud to be heading off to school with his huge rucksack looking happy, healthy and strong.
