Jamaica

Healing Little Hearts in Jamaica.

Core Program.

Gift of Life International has partnered with Chain of Hope UK in Jamaica since 2011. The new pediatric cardiac unit at Bustamante Hospital for Children (BHC) was built and equipped in a collaborative effort between like-minded partners, The Digicel Foundation, Rotary partners, BHC administration and the Jamaican government allowing for Jamaican children with heart disease to be treated in their country of birth.

We are optimistic that a sustainable pediatric cardiac program will be established by the end of 2022 at Bustamante Hospital for Children in Kingston. Although there have been many unforeseen challenges, the Jamaican pediatric cardiac program is strong and has committed leadership which will ultimately prevail. 

Accomplishments to Date:

861 Children Treated
$2.22M Invested
22 Training Visits Conducted

Focus for 2021:

Empowerment of Jamaican doctors and nurses to provide care on a sustainable basis and increase the capacity of the program.
