World-Class Cardiac Surgical and Medical Care for the Poorest Children in India

India remains the world capital for Congenital Heart Disease (CHD), with 300,000 children born each year, and without proper medical/surgical care, more than 94,000 of CHD children die before their 1st birthday (averaging 257 deaths/day), contributing >10% of the Infant Mortality Rate.  Many more will die in infancy or in the preschool ages!

Sadly, these deaths are largely due to the fact cardiac surgery can cost over US$5000 in India, which is well beyond the means of poor, rural families. Heart to Heart (H2H) Foundation is dedicated to saving the lives of all children born with CHD by supporting FREE pediatric cardiac surgeries for these poor children, in collaboration with the Sai Sanjeevani group of hospitals currently operating in Naya Raipur (Chhattisgarh), Palwal (Haryana), and, Kharghar (Navi Mumbai).

Since February 2014, these hospitals have provided totally free-of-cost primary, secondary, and tertiary healthcare exclusively to children with CHD, saving over 7500 children, but the waiting list for surgeries is well over 30,000, so much more needs to be done.  Each one of us can help save a precious child's life by supporting H2H Foundation through Sevathon.  H2H is chaired by India's legendary cricketer Sunil Gavaskar, who has personally supported 34 surgeries (to match his 34 test centuries).
