We are a non-profit foundation registered under the Charitable Societies Act. We enable and fund heart surgery for needy children with heart disease. Congenital heart disease (CHD) or birth defects of the heart have a big impact on childhood death and disability, globally. Nearly 300,000 children are born each year in India with CHD, nearly 1/3rd of whom need expensive heart surgery soon after birth. There are just a handful of hospitals across India that have the ability to treat such children. Such heart surgeries are often complex and expensive, and need advanced infrastructure, equipment and expertise. Many families simply cannot afford treatment or find it difficult to access care. Currently,
Pediatric cardiac surgery is comparatively expensive and majority of patients from India and many other low-income countries cannot afford it. Your contributions to AHF will be used to conduct heart surgeries of needy children being operated at Amrita Hospitals.With your generous support we can continue continues that legacy and allows us to serve more patients than ever before and making the heart-care for the underprivileged.
