This project will begin to address the tremendous need for pediatric cardiac care not only for the underprivileged children of Monterrey, Mexico but also the surrounding communities. A total of 3 VTT training visits will be conducted in 2019-20 at Zambrano Hellison Hospital in Monterrey. Each visit will be two weeks in length with a goal of treating 15 children per mission (7 Cath procedures and 8 surgeries). The hospital has all the necessary equipment needed to conduct pediatric cardiac surgeries and catherizations. However, they are in need of skills transfer as well as funding to procure the specialized supplies and medications to complete these life-saving procedures.
This project needs to receive some pledges to go to the next level. Please check the "Financing" tab to see the list of current pledges. Once the amount pledged is equal to the project budget, the status of the project will be automatically changed to "Fully Pledged". Click here to pledge support for this project.
Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
