The third mission in the history of our foundation is over, we have screened altogether 951 people in 5 days!!! We were examining BMI, blood pressure, glycemia and heart function using echardiography. Thanks to all team members, it was unforgettable time :)
Today we diagnosed congenital heart disease (persistent ductus arteriosus) in this 25 year old woman. Picture was taken after we told to her and her husband that Nadační fond Africké srdce / African Heart Foundation will pay for the catheter surgery in Kathmandu. That is the reason why we organize our missions. Every single life matters :)
Six young cardiologists and two medical students from the Czech Republic are organizing voluntary heart screening camp in Nepal next week! Under the leadership of the African heart foundation!
