Healing Little Hearts in Romania

Gift of Life International implemented its fourth Core Program at Grigore Alexandrescu Hospital (GAH) in Bucharest.

GOLI global partners Save a Child’s Heart (SACH), Albany Medical Center, and Dr. Rodrigo Soto and his team have provided training to the Romanian pediatric cardiac team at GAH. We continue our efforts to empower the Romanian team to care for children independently.
