Healing Little Hearts in Bolivia
Each year approximately 2,000 Bolivian children are born with a congenital heart defect. Today less than 5% of these children are receiving the care they require. Gift of Life International is working to develop a strategy to begin providing hope to more and more of these children. Over the past year, we have conducted 3 Surgical and Catheterization missions in addition to screening over 100 children. Additionally, we have developed a strategy to empower the local healthcare professionals to treat these children in their country of birth.
