Kosova

Healing Little Hearts in Kosova.

Country of Focus.

Sadly, children in Kosova who are born with heart disease have no access to cardiac care. Over the past nine years, five screening visits have been conducted to Prishtina, where children are placed and prioritized on a pediatric cardiac waiting list for treatment. In 2019, we conducted our first-ever surgical and catheterization visit  to Kosova to help address this crisis. During the global pandemic, we were able to mobilize our volunteer medical teams in April and September 2021 to heal little hearts in Prishtina. We plan to return in November 2021 to complete the final visit under the current Rotary Global Grant. 

Accomplishments to Date:

175 Children Treated
$548K Invested
8 Missions Conducted

Focus in 2021:

Conduct three surgical and catheterization visits to Kosova with the treatment of 90 Kosovar children.
