It comes down to extraordinary kindness and teamwork between giving corporations, caring medical professionals, and generous donors like you.

Medical corporations like BIOTRONIK and Boston Scientific provide the pacemakers and lifesaving technologies free of charge. Our network of local surgeons on the ground in each country donate their time and expertise. The remaining costs are covered by your donations.
