Charity surgeries for children with Down's syndrome


By Cai Wenjun


Two children with both Down’s syndrome and congenital heart disease received free surgery thanks to a charity program launched by Shanghai Yodak Cardio-Thoracic Hospital and health authorities in Guizhou Province.


The program offers free screening among local children and gives charity surgeries to poor children with congenital heart disease in Guizhou’s Liupanshui area since September.


Both children who have benefited from the charity program are from poor families in Liupanshui. They didn’t receive heart surgery due to financial difficulty and high risk.
