Summary

Children's heart disease is a very common birth defect globally and 90% of the children born have limited access to the care to lead a normal and healthy life. Nearly 180,000 children are born with Congenital Heart Disease each year in India. Of these, nearly 60,000 to 90,000 suffer from critical CHD requiring early intervention.10% of present infant mortality in India is accounted for CHD. We bridge the gap between the patient and hospital by financially supporting the surgery of poor children.

Challenge

In the remote villages of India, Heart defects and deficiencies are very common to children. Due to their heart ailments these children unable to attend school and even cannot enjoy childhood. They feel breathlessness when they walk or play & sometimes become unconscious hence they are captivated in their homes. Adequate medical care is too expensive. Abhilasha Foundation brings hope to these families by sponsoring life changing heart surgeries.

Solution

The solution to the underprivileged children's heart defects are simple surgical corrections with very high success rates, but the financial burden is too much for rural Indian families to bear the cost of the surgeries. Hence, Abhilasha Foundation financially sponsors heart surgeries for the underprivileged children and these defects are corrected and the children recover soon and lead a normal life.

Long-Term Impact

Children born with heart defects are cured with open heart surgeries and allows these underprivileged children to lead a normal life. Healthy heart allows them to learn and grow alongside with other children and give them the opportunity to thrive and give back to their communities in India. Till date Abhilasha Foundation has financially supported 120 heart surgeries and gave them a new lease of life to the underprivileged children.
