Healing Little Hearts (HLH) was launched as an official registered charity in 2007 (Charity No: 1130194) and provides Free Heart Surgery to those that need it the most. Although work started out in India this is in by no means where it ends, HLH are hoping to branch out to other areas of the world in desperate need of our help and become a Global Foundation.
Every month HLH aim to send a team of 6-8 medical specialists to perform lifesaving heart surgery. Each team stays for one week and operates on between 10-12 children per trip. The highest number of children operated has been 19. HLH operate across centres all over India.
HLH not only perform operations but also train junior doctors and nurses in children’s heart care with the eventual aim of helping the centres to become more self-sustaining.
HLH is the only charity in the world that goes to India with such frequency to address this huge problem.
