Mission Statement


Our Mission...
Saving children's lives through heart surgery.


The Challenge...

Every year in Russia some 19,000 children 
are born with treatable heart defects,
the most common of 
all birth defects.

Less than half of these children are ever diagnosed.

More than a third die before their first birthday.

The majority of them die over the course of a few years.
It doesn't have to be this way.

Our Vision...

That every child in Russia born with heart disease
has access to the care they need
to live a long and healthy life

Our Plan...

Partner with US and international organizations

to develop self-sustaining

children's heart centers abroad.
