Summary

Our attention globally is currently focused on defeating the invisible enemy - the Corona Virus. As we battle against this virus, however, many patients with life-threatening conditions are forced to the back of the queue and are facing dire consequences. As part of "Heart2Heart" project we focus our attention on Egyptian children with heart defects. With a whole life ahead of them and only a queue and financial obstacles in between, these children need your support. Help us save them today!

Challenge

With a fertility rate of 3.37, around 3 million children are born each year in Egypt. Of these, an alarmingly increasing number of them are born with heart abnormalities. Today, this amounts to a staggering 30,000 children annually whose fate is now left to chance. And yet medical advances mean that, as opposed to a decade ago, many of these diseases are completely treatable. Over-exhausted, however, the Egyptian health care system is lacking both human and financial resources to react.

Solution

A child born with a congenital heart disease breaks the hearts of parents. In many instances, a simple non-invasive procedure can solve the problem. Moved by the plight of such children we started a project in 2019 called Heart2Heart. It aims 1) to offer life-saving non-invasive cardiac surgery to children from poor families who could not afford to pay for the procedure 2) to train doctors and nurses so that patients have access to a large pool of specialists in the future.

Long-Term Impact

1) Cure children with heart defects with state-of-the-art non-invasive catheter interventions 2) Help the families of these children 3) Help the children in the remote areas and establish new services 4) Train doctors and nurses in remote hospitals 5) Follow up these children by the local doctors 6) Help the community as the children become healthy and normal
