Healing Little Hearts in El Salvador

Legacy Program

The pediatric cardiac program in El Salvador has shown tremendous progress over the past ten years. The number of children treated annually continues to increase, as does the complexity of cases operated and recovered by the Salvadoran team.

As a result of the mentorship of world-class medical teams, the Salvadoran healthcare professionals have increased their skill level and are now able, in most cases, to treat children with heart disease independent of a visiting team.

Accomplishments to Date:

1,907 Children Treated
$4.35M Invested
34 Training Visits Conducted

Focus for 2020:

Empowerment of Salvadoran doctors and nurses to provide care on a sustainable basis.
