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.
