The difference between life and death.
Heart disease is disheartening, especially when it affects infants and children. While technology may have made life-saving advancements, these are also unaffordable (Surgery costs from
र 1,50,000 to 1,95,000) which put even primary treatment facilities beyond the common man's reach. We see parents sell their jewellery and even their home in an effort to save their child.
Have a Heart Foundation is a transparent, non-profit organisation that aims to save the lives of underprivileged children from birth upto 12 years by sponsoring heart surgeries and post-operative care. Have A Heart Foundation reaches out to children of daily wage earners who earn as little as
र 2000 per month and who have no option but to lose everything, or their child.
Have A Heart has tied up with hospitals in Bangalore, Kolkata, Durgapur, Jaipur and Ludhiana. The Foundation in Mumbai has tied up with Kokilaben Dhirubhai AmbaniHospital to provide unbiased superlative care for patients across Maharashtra. The focus is on vascular conditions such as coil closures which require ballooning or stenting, intra cardiac repairs, closure of ventricular septal defect and bidirectional glemmshuntar.
The government does offer several schemes for citizen below poverty line, but the hospitals that have enrolled in this scheme, don't have the proper post-operative care. With the highest quality of post operative care for every child, the survival rate can as high as 98%.
Have A Heart Foundation aims to heal hundreds of hearts and ensure that these children live to see a healthy future.
