Transportation for a child to receive life-saving heart surgery
Papua New Guinea has one of the most rural populations of any country in the world. Combined with the relatively low number of healthcare professionals in this region, high-quality medical care is not easily accessible. The mortality rates for children under the age of five are incredibly high. With odds like these stacked against them, it can be nearly impossible for vulnerable children to access the medical care they need to survive and thrive.
Simbu Children Foundation provides funding for pediatric cardiac patients and a guardian to travel to the country's capital in Port Moresby for CT scans and/or heart surgery. Your gift helps fund these trips to ensure that children have access to necessary medical care, regardless of where they were born.
