HeartGift provides life-saving heart surgeries to children from around the world born with congenital heart defects where specialized medical treatment is either scarce or nonexistent. With 1 in 100 babies born with a congenital heart defect (CHD) globally each year, we have the ability to impact a child’s life and provide a lifetime of freedom from this disease.
In industrialized countries such as the United States, the corrective surgery is accessible and provided to those in need, regardless of financial capacity or geographic location, but the children we serve do not have access to this care. In 2000, HeartGift was founded to address this disparity and since inception, it has served nearly 500 children from 34 countries, with chapters in Austin, San Antonio, New Orleans and Houston.
