Happy World Heart Day

Happy World Heart Day!

We're celebrating by reflecting on the 20 young lives turned around in the last four years by the treatment we've been able to offer, with your support. 

We're also thinking about what more needs to be done to tackle rheumatic heart disease, the cause of the heart problems of most of our patients.

Please view and share this great video (which features a few familiar faces), if you you want to know more.
