Little Hearts

Little Hearts project provides free life-saving cardiac surgery and interventional cardiac catheterisation for children with Congenital Heart Defects from underprivileged families irrespective of gender, race or religion.

What is a congenital heart disease?

Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) is a defect in the heart that a baby is born with. It affects 1 in 100 births around the world and can be treated with an invasive/non-invasive heart operation at birth depending on the type of heart defect.

In poor underdeveloped countries, access to treatment is next to impossible for many of its’ poor. Suffering from:

01

  • A lack of skilled health professionals.
  • 02

  • A lack of investment in cardiac sector.
  • 03

  • Where there is the facility and expertise; it is beyond the financial means of the poor.
  • Lens123.co.uk pledges to donate 10% of all profits to the Little Hearts project. The largest heart treatment project of its kind in the world, sending a team of more than 30 heart professionals each time carrying out on average 60 operations.

    The impact of this project is far reaching.
