Since 2013, The Gift of Life Inc., Russian Gift of Life USA, and renowned cardiac surgeon Dr. William Novick have been collaborating to improve the care of children with heart disease by developing children’s heart centers abroad. The ninth surgical training mission to Voronezh, Russia began on November 4th and will continue through November 18th.

The medical personnel at the Voronezh Regional Hospital have selected many children to be examined and several to be operated on during this two week medical mission. Several complex surgeries are planned. Parents are anxiously waiting in the children's ward to learn what can be done for their son or daughter, who suffer from treatable heart defects. Russian Gift of Life USA is proud to help fund this lifesaving mission. 

Happy baby Maria Popova, who was operated on during the last mission to Voronezh, is shown here with her mother.
