Surgeons of Hope – Nicaragua Mission

The Surgeons of Hope Foundation (SoH), is a New York City, NY based nonprofit established in 2002. The organization aims to provide every infant and child with a damaged heart an equal opportunity to receive life-saving surgery.

Worldwide, over a million children are born with congenital heart disease every year. Millions more are affected by rheumatic heart disease. While most heart defects can now be corrected or improved, children living in developing countries are routinely denied life-saving cardiac surgery because of their place of birth.

Surgeons of Hope seeks to narrow that disparity by living up to its motto: “It’s Not What We Bring. It’s What We Leave Behind”.
