Join Team Heart at a special event to raise funds towards building the first Cardiac Care Center in Rwanda. The Team Heart Gala will also honor the First Lady of Rwanda, Her Excellency Mrs. Jeannette Kagame, for her work in promoting dignity and socio-economic growth of vulnerable communities across Rwanda.

The Gala will be held on Saturday, November 7, 2015 at Boston College High School, 150 Morrissey Boulevard, Boston, MA.

Team Heart has collaborated with Rwanda since 2008 to provide care for an increasing number of children and young adults with heart disease. Many of our patients suffer from rheumatic heart disease (RHD), one of the most neglected diseases of poverty and childhood which is a result of untreated strep throat. Despite having been almost eradicated in developed countries, Rheumatic Heart Disease remains a leading cause of hospitalizations and cardiac deaths in Rwanda and other low-income countries. In addition, congenital heart disease is thought to affect 6-8 of every 1000 children born in Rwanda and is largely undiagnosed and untreated.
