Congenital Heart Disease
in East Africa.
Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) is an enormous problem in Low Middle Income Countries and particularly in sub-Saharan Africa.
The livelihood of 500,000 children born with CHD in Africa each year is in danger.
We need more support to save children's lives.
SAVE CHILDREN'S HEARTS.
Many children worldwide begin their lives at a disadvantage due to their identity and place of origin. Health For Children Foundation expresses deep concern for children affected by lack of good healthcare system.
Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) poses a significant challenge in Low Middle Income Countries, especially in sub-Saharan Africa. Approximately 500,000 children in Africa are born with CHD each year, with a significant portion occurring in sub-Saharan Africa.
Unfortunately, the majority of these children receive inadequate or no medical care at all. In East Africa, specifically in Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda, efforts have been made over the past two decades to establish a CHD service, but they have faced limited success due to various factors.
The rights of these children to survive is currently at risk. We have the ability to take action. Join us in safeguarding children, ensuring their well-being, enabling them to flourish and help their heart beat longer.
