FMIC update January 2020

We appreciate the support and encouragement from Friends of FMIC!

This project is sepciafically dedicated to support Afghan kids suffering from CHD. 

Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) is a problem of the structure of the heart that is present at birth. It can affect how blood flows through the heart and out to the rest of the body. Common examples include holes in different areas of the heart and narrow or leaky valves. In children the most common type of CHD is the ventricular septal defect (VSD), a hole in the wall separating the bottom two chambers of the heart (the ventricles). Many Afghan infants with CHD require surgery to survive. FMIC is a place where CHD patients can find help and hope.

Each year our team of experts performs more than 250 paediatric cardiac surgeries with almost 90% of these patients receiving financial assistance. FMIC is considering to accommodate additional surgeries so that more kids benefit from our high quality services.

With your help we can bring the community together to support additional surgeries.
