Free Heart Surgeries for Children of Fiji
Raised so far
Fund Raising Goal
73 Children given free Heart Surgery
FijiLife Foundation is proud to support the “Gift of Life” Free Heart Surgeries project conducted by Sai Prema Foundation Fiji with a grant of $15,000.
HUNDREDS OF CHILDREN AWAITING SURGERY
The Health of a Child is the true wealth of a nation. Currently there is a high burden of Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) in children of Fiji and other South Pacific Island Nations for which currently there are no pediatric cardiac services available.
Approximately 200 children in Fiji and 2,500 in the Pacific Island nations are born with CHD annually! The sad fact is that MANY children are unable to survive as there are no services available in Fiji and families cannot afford overseas treatment.
‘Gift of Life’ is a successful project providing free heart surgeries to the underprivileged and needy children of Fiji by visiting specialist pediatric cardiac teams.
Since 2016, 73 children have been given free heart surgeries saving their families over FJD $7 million through the ‘Gift of Life’ project.
The Sai Prema Foundation Fiji is a Non-Government Organisation (NGO) and a registered Charitable Organisation under the Charitable Trust Act of Fiji, founded in August 2016 to serve the poor, underprivileged and needy people of Fiji through Medicare, Educare, and Sociocare initiatives. The Children’s Heart Hospital will house state-of-the-art equipment for its Cathaterisation Lab, Operation Theatre, Intensive Care Unit, Pre-Operation and Post-Operation Wards. The Hospital will also include a Training Centre with technological capabilities for international Video Conferencing.
A NEW EXCLUSIVE CHILDREN’S HEART HOSPITAL IN FIJI
It is in fact a matter of great pride that Fiji will be the first nation in the Pacific and Oceania region to have a Pediatric Cardiac Super-Speciality Hospital treating children with CHD.
All surgeries and treatments will be performed absolutely free of cost. Yes, you read it right – the Hospital does not and will not ever have a billing counter!
FijiLife Foundation is proud to support this hospital in providing “Gift of Life” Free Heart Surgeries for the Children of Fiji and the Pacific.
The soon-to-be opened Children’s Heart Hospital will be an answer to prayers of thousands of families who cannot afford treatment overseas nor have the option of accessing local treatment due to its sheer unavailability.
The vision of this children’s free heart hospital is to become the most important Pediatric Cardiac Centre for Fiji and the Pacific Island nations.
Despite the charitable nature of the project, this hospital will be a world-class facility with the aim of providing the best possible surgery and treatment to the children of Fiji and the Pacific. The Hospital will house state-of-the-art equipment for its Catheterisation Lab, Operating Theatre, Intensive Care Unit, Preoperative and Postoperative Wards. The Hospital will also include a Training Centre with technological capabilities for International Video Conferencing.
Immediately following the official inauguration, an Australian and American team of Pediatric Cardiac super-specialists will begin operating on Fiji’s children.
