There are 2 pediatric cardiac surgeons in Tanzania.
 To the left is one of them.  
There are about  46 million people. 60% are children. 

1/100 have Congenital Heart Disease. 

We’re rushing to get a cardiac team set for a mission as soon as we can to help these children.

We are in Cape Town this week, sponsoring a colorectal conference with Marc Levitt of Columbus Nationwide Hospital and attended by Phil Frykman (leading our mission to China next month) and, here, trying out Google Glass and further supporting Mending Kids’ efforts to mend children with congenital malformations while empowering self-sustaining programs!
   A dozen sub-Saharan African surgeons are taking part in this exchange of critical knowledge.

This is why we do what we do.

"You healed my daughter in 2005 when you found her in her home province of Hainan, China. You brought her to Cedars-Sinai to repair her Tetralogy of Fallot and fit her with her first leg brace.

Two and a half years later we adopted her once she was back in China. We never lost track of her in all the time we were waiting to adopt her. Thank you so much for everything you have done and still continue doing.”
