Where We Operate

After being founded as a medical charity, organizing its work and conducting 78 surgeries in Memphis, TN, the ICHF turned its focus to developing countries where children with congenital heart defects have no options. These countries span all continents.

The statistics on this page document the thousands of children whose lives ICHF has saved all around the world since its first Babyheart Medical Mission to Zagreb, Croatia in April, 1993. Local doctors trained by ICHF medical teams continue to save thousands more.
