Healing Little Hearts in Bolivia.

Core 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. In 2021, Gift of Life International designated Bolivia as its fifth Core Program. Since 2019, we have conducted 3 Surgical and Catheterization visits in addition to screening over 100 children. We are excited to return to Hospital del Ninos in La Paz, Bolivia in Fall 2021 to continue the empowerment of local healthcare professionals to treat Bolivian children in their country of birth. 

Accomplishments to Date:

37 Children Treated
$280K Invested
3 Missions Conducted

Focus in 2022:

We look forward to returning to Bolivia in early 2022 after having to pause travel due to the global pandemic in 2020-21. We are ready and eager to provide world-class mentorship to the Bolivian pediatric cardiac team as we work together to develop a Sustainable Pediatric cardiac program in La Paz.
