The heart Fund - Dr David Luu

In April 2012, The Heart Fund and Jimmy Jean-Louis organized their first mission to support children with heart disease. Dr. David Luu participated in the heart surgery operations of 3 children in the presence of Pr Lacour-Gayet (OpenHeartHaiti), Pr Deloche (Chain of Hope) and Dr. Degand (Chain of Hope) and Ambassador Jimmy Jean-Louis attends for the first time to an open-heart operation.

Cardiovascular disease is a major scourge in Haiti and is responsible for a high mortality rate. Children are the most vulnerable and almost one in every hundred children is born with a heart defect. It is estimated that 2000 children are born with heart disease each year in Haiti. There are only 15 cardiologists for 10 million people and no heart surgery or cardiology centers.

Since then, The Heart Fund has been committed to the prevention, screening and treatment of heart disease in Haiti in collaboration with Jimmy Jean-Louis, President of Hollywood Unites for Haiti.

Throw yourself into the heart of this mission, follow the team of The Heart Fund in hospitals and camps.
