Healing Children's Hearts in Latin America
Surgeons of Hope sends volunteer medical teams on life-saving missions to provide free heart surgery for impoverished children living in Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Paraguay. Surgical procedures that are commonplace in the developed world are out of reach for poor countries. 90% of children born with congenital heart disease in poor countries do not receive the medical treatment they need and deserve, often leading to pre-mature death.
Surgeons of Hope is changing this reality by providing life-saving surgery to infants and children with congenital or acquired heart defects, and training and equipping the local surgical and medical teams we work with. Our motto is: "It's not what we bring. It's what we leave behind".
