Healing Little Hearts in Bolivia

New Program

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. 

Accomplishments to Date:

37 Children Treated
$90K Invested
3 Missions Conducted

Focus in 2020:

We will conduct 3 Surgical and 1 Catheterization training visit to empower the Bolivian healthcare professionals while providing treatment for 45 children with heart disease.
