Rinat Akhmetov to Children. Healthy Heart
Launch date: 2017
Since 2013, the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation has been helping children diagnosed with heart defect. To systemically fight this disease, the Healthy Heart project was launched in 2017. Under this project, children undergo correctional surgeries at the country’s leading cardiology clinics, where they are implanted an occluder that closes the heart defect:
– Mykola Amosov National Institute of Cardiovascular Surgery;
– Okhmadyt National Specialized Children’s Hospital;
– Institute of Heart of the Health Ministry of Ukraine.
This help is provided to children from newborns to 18-year-olds from low-income and socially-vulnerable families with registration in the Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts non-government controlled territory.
Thanks to the help from Rinat Akhmetov, more than 120 surgeries closing heart defect have been performed on children.
