Give a child a new lease of life

For just £40 a month over one year or by making a single donation of £500, your sponsorship with Healing Little Hearts will save a child’s life in the developing world. With your help, we are able to offer FREE life saving heart operations to those that need it the most.

All children deserve the right to live a joyful and pain-free life – the best chance for a successful future. However, in countries of low income and no government funding, many families are unable to afford treatment for their child.

By sponsoring a child you will enable us to overcome the injustices and give children the gift of life with a happier and promising future.

“With the money that was gifted to me on my birthday this year I decided I wanted to save a child’s life”

Miriam and Martha

Identical twins Miriam and Martha aged 9, live in a town called Limuru which is approximately 40kms from Nairobi, Kenya. Since birth they were both thought to have inoperable heart conditions.

During our recent camp to MP Shah Hospital in Nairobi, our Cardiologists were able to confirm that the twins have heart defects which are in fact operable. The team have planned to perform their operations on our next camp to Nairobi which will be in 2019.

Our very first patient

On our first camp to the Asian Heart Institute in Mumbai (August 2007), our team operated on a youg girl called Kalyani. Her father a Security Watchman and her mother a housewife, Kalyani’s parents were unable to afford treatment for their child. Healing Little Hearts mission is to help those in need. Ten years on…we were incredibly proud to hear she is embarking on a Bachelor of Commerce course at University.

“Thanks to Healing Little Hearts charity and my sponsor, I was fortunate to have my operation and be able to live a healthy life and study. My dream of becoming a banker will soon become my reality and I will be able to help others”

Where your sponsorship money goes

With at least 96p in every pound you donate going directly to saving children’s lives, you can be assured the money you raise will make a lasting difference.

How your sponsorship helps children

Over a million children are born in the developing world every year with Congenital Heart Disease 90% of whom will NEVER receive life saving surgery. It costs approximately £6,000 to send a medical team to a partner Hospital in a Low Income country. Our teams perform heart surgery on up to 12 babies and children with Congenital Heart Disease. Therefore the cost to give a child a new lease of life is only £500.
