Hope in the midst of pandemic - Pediatric Cardiac Mission restarted!
May 29, 2021
In February , we have restarted our pediatric cardiac mission in partnership with Rotary Club of Cebu and Gift of Life International. Because of the unavailability of Vicente Sotto Hospital in Cebu, we had to fly the kids to Manila to get their much-needed heart fix.

The first mission this year covers 18 catheterization intervention and 4 simple open heart cases.
We are hoping the success of this mission will open opportunities for more children. We are also hopeful that we can restart the programs we had with Vicente Sotto Medical Center as that is more convenient for families residing in Visayas and Mindanao area.
Thank you to Gift of Life International, Rotary Club of Cebu, and RCMW / Rotary Club of Makati West for continually healing children’s hearts even in the pandemic.
Thank you to our partner doctors, Dr Luisa Go, Dr Dexter Cheng, Dr Anna Marie Cabaero.
Thank you also to our great network of volunteers (Let It Echo, Heart Warrior Philippines, and Jaden&Friends) who are assisting the parents all throughout the process.
