Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) is the largest cause of Child Mortality in India. In India, 300,000 children are born every year with CHD. Because of problem of Availability, Affordability, Accessibility; 25% among these die within 1st year of birth. Sri Sathya Sai Sanjeevani Pediatric Cardiac Hospitals in India provide Totally Free of Cost Treatment to all and have performed over 11,500 surgeries in 7 years. This project aims to treat 100 such poor and needy children in India with CHD.
1 out of 100 Children born in India are born with Congenital Heart Disease. This is considered to be largest birth defect and cause for mortality. Due to untimely Diagnosis and extremely expensive treatment, poor families cannot afford this treatment and children meet their fate of early death.
This project shall support Pediatric cardiac treatment at Sanjeevani Hospital (India) for totally 10 children hailing from poor families suffering with CHD with no cost to the family. From diagnostic to open heart operation including food, medication shall be given totally free of cost to the patient. Without this treatment, these children will meet natural death as they cannot afford treatment worth $ 4000-5000 in a private setup. This will give new life to them and their families.
Sanjeevani Hospital provides Totally Free High Quality Pediatric Cardiac Treatment with Love & Compassion. A free operation for the family is an investment we do in a child who has potential to become a world famous artist/sportsperson or a leader as a treated child lives a normal life like a healthy child. A child which was a burden becomes an asset to the family and nation. Effect of this selfless work has deeper impact of uplifting poor families from economic shackles & emotional sufferings.
