SAVE A CHILD'S HEART
Project Save a Child's Heart is our new fundraising project that we are undertaking to provide heart operations for 5 poor Nicaraguan "blue baby"* children who are in desperate need of heart operations. These 5 children will receive from Save a Child's Heart Foundation* the heart operations they need at a cost of $10,000.00 each plus airfare to Israel, chaperon expenses, use of portable oxygen generators for the flight and miscellaneous expenses. We estimate the total cost for 5 children to be approximately $60,000.00. After sending all required medical records, tests, etc. to the Save a Child's Heart Foundation doctors, should any of these children not be good candidates for the operations available; we have a waiting list of other children needing heart operations that can be substituted. These operations are absolutely not available in Nicaragua. We are actively perusing help from several U.S. charitable organizations and hospitals, but we strongly feel that Save a Child's Heart Foundation is our best chance of helping these seriously ill children who's time is running out.
*Blue Baby is a baby with a blue complexion from lack of oxygen in the blood due to a congenital defect of the heart or major blood vessels.
