The mission of the International Children's Heart Foundation (ICHF) is to bring the skills, technology and knowledge to cure and care for children with congenital heart disease to developing countries. ICHF does this regardless of country of origin, race, religion or gender.

Our goal is to make the need for ICHF obsolete. We work toward this goal through our mission trips where we operate and educate local health care professionals, and provide needed equipment and medications.

As a 501(c)3 charitable organization, the ICHF enlists your support to provide hope and life for children throughout the developing world. Let our passion become yours!
