Doing Our Best During Covid-19

Solo Run
Solo Run

The Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic greatly impacted how we were able to interact, and the level of service we could provide for our patients. Since people were advised to shelter in place and maintain social distancing, many patients were unable to get regular check-ups and needed treatment. However, although in crisis during the past months, Care for a Child’s Heart was able to provide 21 patients with medicine; 6 patients and their families were given shelter and accommodation at the Family Support Center for a total of 182 nights; and 10 new patients were referred to CFACH for needed heart treatment.

 

Also, the President of CFACH, Solomon 'Solo' Musyimi is running 2020 Kilometres (approx 1255 Miles) this year to raise US $50 000 (Approx Ksh. 5 000 000) for CFACH programs. For every 1 Mile Solomon runs, he makes an incredible difference in the life of an indigent Kenyan child suffering from congenital heart disease. It would be great to have you run with him or contribute to his efforts to save a child's life.

 

As the pandemic is controlled, and the situation improves, CACH is looking forward to welcoming back all patients, and resuming full service.Care for a Child’s Heart and CAC are grateful to all partners, funders, and supporters that continue to believe in our work and the impact it has on many lives.  Your continued donation to this worthy cause that influences lives of deserving children and families in Kenya is truly appreciated. Partnerships and support from benefactors are pertinent to growth in our organizations. Thank you.
