"It's Not What We Bring. It's What We Leave Behind."
- Over 1 million children are born every year with a heart defect.
- In developing countries, 90% of children with heart defects have no access to treatment.
- If left untreated, heart defects dramatically decrease a child’s quality of life, and can lead to death (children born with severe heart disease have a 12x higher risk of mortality in their first year of life).
Surgeons of Hope partners with children’s hospitals in Latin America (Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Paraguay) to build locally sustainable pediatric cardiac programs. By providing knowledge, skills, training, and equipment to these programs, we are ensuring that poor children have access to the lifesaving heart treatments they need.
Your help means everything to us, and most importantly, to the children we serve. It is the difference between life and death for a poor child suffering from heart disease.
