Provide heart surgeries for Rio's poorest children

by Dreams Can Be Foundation

The Procrianca Foundation continues to perform heart surgeries for children from poor families. The hospital is also focusing on building a hospital that will provide state of the art surgeries in a setting that will offer their services to the community that can pay that will offset the nonprofit work that they perform. In eleven years of work (1996-2007), Pró Criança Cardíaca has achieved the following results:

Odontological Appointments 1,028 Clinical Treatments 139 Catheterizations 258 General Surgeries 259 Cardiac Surgeries 619 Echocardiograms 4,142 Electrocardiograms 4,086 Total Number of Children Treated 11,338
