Healing Little Hearts in Haiti

Country of Focus.

In response to the crisis which exists for Haitian children with heart disease, in 2015 Gift of Life International formed a partnership with St. Damien Hospital. We have successfully trained the first-ever Haitian pediatric cardiologist who is now providing care to Haitian children at St. Damien Hospital.

Due to civil unrest and the global pandemic, we have been unable to send medical teams into Haiti since early 2019. Understanding the urgent need for Haitian children who have no access to cardiac care, Gift of Life International has partnered with Haiti Cardiac Alliance and The Rotary Foundation to provide treatment to these children in The Dominican Republic. 

Accomplishments to Date:

374 Children Treated
$ 1.2M Invested
20 Missions Conducted
1,083 Children Screened

Focus in 2021:

Gift of Life International will continue our efforts to treat these children in need through our partnerships with Haiti Cardiac Alliance and The Rotary Foundation.
