Chain of Hope helps children in desperate need of heart treatments. Here are just a few children who owe their lives to the many medical experts, volunteers and generous donors who help us to carry out this incredible work.
Baby Ahmed was born with a complex congenital heart condition, which meant he needed heart surgery to survive. Chain of Hope flew him and his mother to London where successful surgery has meant Ahmed and his family were able to celebrate his first birthday!
Suffering from rheumatic heart disease, orphan Haile was left at a hospital in Addis Ababa with little chance of survival. A life-saving operation in Egypt organised by Chain of Hope means he is now fit and well, with a whole new life in front of him.
Sharon was born with congenital heart disease that required open heart surgery. Referred by a hospital in Nairobi, Sharon’s life was saved by Great Ormond Street Consultant surgeon, Mr Martin Kostolny who operated on Sharon with a voluntary team in the UK.
