It is every child’s right to be born into a world where he or she can thrive, grow to be strong and make their parents proud. It is not, however, every child’s destiny.
One in every 100 children born in the developing world will never see his first birthday because of congenital heart disease. His parents will mourn the loss. They are powerless to save him because the resources required to treat and cure congenital heart disease are not easily accessible in developing countries and remote regions. Medical team skills, money to transport and house patients and their families, medicines, equipment and facilities are scarce.
The mission of the International Children’s Heart Foundation (ICHF) is to bring the skills, technology and knowledge to cure and care for children with congenital heart disease to developing countries. ICHF does this regardless of country of origin, race, religion or gender.
Our goal is to make the need for ICHF obsolete. We work toward this goal through our mission trips where we operate and educate local health care professionals, and provide needed equipment and medications.
As a 501(c)3 charitable organization, the ICHF enlists your support to provide hope and life for children throughout the developing world. Let our passion become yours!
