Heart Healers International is a non-profit organization that began in 2008. We work in African countries bringing life saving heart diagnostics and treatments to children. We also work alongside the local medical teams in caring for patients, conducting ongoing research, and providing education as to ensure sustainability and success for the cardiac health of African children.
Dr. Craig Sable and colleagues at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, DC and other institutions throughout the world have collaborated with the medical team at the Uganda Heart Institute at Mulago Hospital, the largest public teaching hospital in Uganda, to improve the care of children with heart disease in Uganda. Dr. Sable has personally led 16 medical missions to Mulago Hospital since 2003; the last seven have focused on performing open-heart surgeries at the Uganda Heart Institute. He has also coordinated nine other surgical trips by teams from North America, Europe, India and Asia.
Our underlying premise is that no child with treatable heart disease should be left behind.
