The vacant lot next door to the public hospital, La Mascota Children's Hospital, is being transformed into a new Pediatric Heart Center of Nicaragua, as Surgeons of Hope's project is beginning to take shape. 

These much-needed supplies are intended for emergency use in pediatric heart operations when the young patient needs to be stabilized in the Intensive Care Unit.  These supplies and more will be needed when the new Pediatric Heart Center opens.  In the meantime, they are necessary for the surgical teams who visit La Mascota for missions to operate and train the local team, all in preparation for the opening of the new building, which will in turn fill a role as a modern surgical center and as a learning center for the region.  Eventually, Surgeons of Hope will provide supplies and medications to the new Center.

As Valentine's Day is approaching, why not make a gift to our supplies project, knowing that you are being a friend to a child's heart, a heart which needs your friendship.  Love can truly enter the heart in friendship's disguise.  And, what better way to celebrate Valentine's Day!  If you would like to make a gift on behalf of some special someone, simply read the details below:
