Since 1996, Chain of Hope has been providing life-saving cardiac treatment for children from war-torn and developing countries who would otherwise find it almost impossible to receive the treatment they deserve.
The charity treats these children in two ways; by conducting teaching and training missions at cardiac units around the world, as well as, provide emergency treatment by transporting children to leading centres in the UK, Europe, Asia, India Dubai and Egypt.
These missions have two aims: to treat children suffering from life-threatening heart diseases and to provide onsite expertise and teaching for local cardiac teams.
Since our inauguration by Professor Sir Magdi Yacoub, OM, FRS, we have worked with 43 countries to save the lives of children in need.
Chain of Hope is funded entirely on donations and does not receive support from the government. Each child’s life that is saved is thanks to the kindness of our donors and supporters.
