WHAT WE DO

We Provide Access to Life-saving Care For Those That Can Not Afford it

Each year in developing countries around the world an estimated 2-3 million people die because they cannot afford a pacemaker surgery. Our commitment is to raise funds and coordinate with medical teams around the world to help provide the surgery and medical care that will save their lives.

HOW WE DO IT

The Passion of Our Network

Our network consists of generous partners and donors, volunteers on the ground in-country, corporate partners who donate pacemakers, funding and supplies, and a network of medical professionals who contribute their time and expertise. Because of that generosity, a life-saving surgery that often costs upwards of $50,000 or more, can be achieved for a little as $585 in donations. That means every $585 we raise – just $585 – can save a person’s life.

THE IMPACT

Life-saving and Life-changing

The impact of our collective efforts is both life-saving and life-changing. Every time a patient receives a life-saving device or pacemaker surgery provided by ForHearts, it gives them a whole new chance at life. For a child, it is a chance to grow up and get an education, get married, have children, and fulfill their destiny. For an adult, it is the ability to work, provide for their family, and live a productive life.

Meet Mei

Diagnosed with congenital heart block at the age of 3, Mei Gui has lived with a pacemaker for most of her life. Now, 30 years after her initial surgery, she contributes her excellent health to the device that saved her life, allowing her to be an active participant in her life, the lives of her family and community.

Meet Keila

Keila was only a few days old when she received her first pacemaker from our organization. Now, she is happy, healthy and active! Though she will likely need a replacement pacemaker in the years to come, Keila is a patient for life.

Meet Geraldine

Geraldine underwent two heart surgeries before the age of ten years old. Born with Down Syndrome and a severe heart condition, her parents could not afford the life-saving surgery she desperately needed. That is when an entire team of volunteer surgeons from our organization jumped into action to provide a pacemaker to a beautiful little girl and give her a second chance at life.

Meet Charisse

At the age of 25, Charisse learned that she had symptomatic bradycardia as well as a congenital third-degree heart block. Without a pacemaker, she would not have been able to live much longer. Our volunteer medical team provided the surgery and care she needed, granting Charisse renewed hope and energy for years to come.

Meet Christine

Christine first came to us at 14 years old after a diagnosed heart block. Living in Trinidad, her family could not afford the surgery, but with the help of our volunteer medical staff we were able to save her life. Today, Christine continues to receive ongoing follow-up care and looks toward the future with excitement and gratitude.

PROVIDING LIFELONG CARE

Each Patient Receives Regular
Checkups and Care Free of Charge

That means we stay in contact and provide the cardiac care they need to live a long, healthy and productive life. And because a pacemaker needs to be replaced every 4 to 8 years, we provide a new device as the patient requires.
