Summary

Congenital heart defects are one of the most frequent causes of death of children under 1 year of age. Their lives can be saved if treatment is provided in time! We help raise money to pay for the treatment of cardiac surgery.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In Russia, approximately 8 out of every 1,000 newborns have congenital heart defects. They are one of the most frequent causes of death of children under 1 year of age. About 50% of children require surgery in the neonatal period or in the first year of life. But often, government cannot fully ensure the timely provision of expensive medical care. For most children with congenital heart disease CHARITY is the only way to get a life-saving surgery.

How will this project solve this problem?

Our foundation has been operating for eleven years, over 250 million rubles have been raised, and through our work, 1,543 children are alive and well. These lives were saved by people unfamiliar to us and the children, people who believe that every life is unique and that every child should live his/her life. Your donation will allow to save hundreds of children with congenital heart defects, regardless of whether you have sponsored the whole treatment or donated just $10.

Potential Long Term Impact

Heart disease is curable if treatment is carried out on time! Every day counts. The motto of the fund is: Young children shouldn't be dying from preventable diseases! Young children shouldn't be dying because of their parents hot having enough money!
