Hearts4Kids Trust is raising funds for its volunteer NZ medical team to travel to Fiji in September to perform life-saving heart surgery.
There are 350 children born each year in the Pacific Islands that do not have immediate access to this life saving surgery without travelling to NZ or receiving medical missions from other countries.
The Hearts4Kids Trust is raising funds for its volunteer New Zealand medical team to travel to Fiji in September to perform life-saving congenital heart surgery on babies and children of the Pacific.
Repairing simple congenital heart defects is an extremely effective medical intervention. Children who would not expect to survive their childhood and who live with crippling fatigue and breathlessness are cured with one operation. They can carry on living life without the need for long term medication or follow-up.
With your help these children have the opportunity to lead an active and fulfilling life.
All of the funds donated will be used specifically to operate and care for the children in Fiji. Priority will be given to purchase equipment, disposables and drugs and the balance of funds will be used to pay for economy travel and house the medical team.
The support and administration of Hearts4Kids Trust is fully pro-bono.
