EurAsia Heart Foundation

Founded in 2006, EurAsia Heart Foundation saves at least 1,000 children per year through training and medical support in emerging and developing countries by aligning with local health systems to expand medical training to improve cardiologic outcomes, particularly among children. Left untreated, congenital heart disease is one of the most frequent causes of death in children under the age of 5.

Overview

Cardiovascular diseases are a frequent cause of premature death in infants that could have been saved with curative intervention. Local health systems are under financed and lack appropriate medical experts. To remedy this, EurAsia Heart Foundation provides on-site training to local medical staffs and supervision to boost national health care systems. The organization's work saves the lives of over 1,000 vulnerable children per year.
