Gift of Life International provides life-saving heart surgery to children in need. Nutritional assistance is requested in order to help ensure each child a full recovery and a healthy future following heart surgery. The children who receive the surgery are from extremely low income families. They live in one room structures made of sheet metal or adobe with a dirt floor. Many families sleep in hammocks and cook over an open fire. $42.00 will provide a family of 4 with food, vitamins and basic hygiene items for a month.
