To give babies with congenital heart disease a better start in life by improving the detection, diagnosis and care before and immediately after birth. 5,000 heart babies are born in the UK each year yet only one third of them are diagnosed before birth. Those not diagnosed before birth do not get immediate access to the medical support they need and sadly many are sent home undiagnosed only to collapse and be rushed to hospital. Hundreds of babies are dying each year from conditions which would have been treatable had they been picked up before birth.
Each of GlobalGiving’s nonprofit partners is required to send quarterly donor reports detailing the impact of their work.
