Gift of Life International

Healing little hearts around the world.

Over 1.3 million children are born each year with a congenital heart defect. 93% are born in a country that cannot provide them with treatment. Gift of Life International provides lifesaving surgery to a child every two hours and 18 minutes by empowering doctors and nurses with the tools, training, funding and support they need to treat children in their country of birth.
