Heart4Heart is an entirely student-run, international children’s charity which provides life-saving surgeries for children in developing countries with congenital heart disease (CHD). CHD is the number one birth defect in the world but easily preventable if you have access to modern medicine. Surgeries only cost $1000 in the areas that we operate and we fundraise for one child at a time, so donors can put a face to exactly where their money is going. Contact Alex Sheena, asheena@tulane.edu.
