It is estimated that out of every
1000 births, 9 babies are diagnosed
with Congenital Heart Disease.

Pelo Foundation is raising funds to ensure that children with Congenital Heart Disease receive life-saving surgery and continue to receive medical treatment, which may range from a simple Diagnostic Angiogram to Interventional Procedures or even Cardiac Surgery.

It is estimated that 1 out of every 1000 babies are born with Congenital Heart Disease and that every 6 hours a new-born is added to the waiting list of those in need of Congenital Heart Disease surgery. Data also shows that 1 to 2 children with Congenital Heart Disease die each week.

Pelo’s Vision is to have a Continental Footprint that will ensure that Africa’s Children with Congenital Heart Disease from indigent communities can have a chance to make it to adulthood.

Our Mission is to bring Joy, Love, and Light to children with Congenital Heart Disease.

Our Aim

Pelo Foundation is raising funds to ensure that children with CHD receive life-saving surgery and medical treatment that could give them a chance in life.

Why it Matters

Data indicates that 10 to 20% of the children, who don't receive surgery or medical treatment for Congenital Heart Disease, will not survive without medical assistance.
