Enhancing Capacity in Healthcare

"Touching Hearts in Tibet"

GO BACK TO MAP
Home to the highest plateau on earth, Tibet has a high congenital heart disease rate (around 7%) due to various factors. While operation is a standard and generally effective medical solution to this condition, hospitals in Tibet were not equipped nor staffed to provide such surgery. Timely diagnosis and treatment can greatly improve children’s survival rate and live a healthy life by beating the odds of congenital heart disease, a leading cause of birth defect-related deaths.

To address this urgent need, ZeShan and Si Yuan foundations along with a number of family members pooled funds to support the “Touching Hearts in Tibet” project. This humanitarian effort included the purchase and installation of a Bi-plane Catheterization laboratory and the creation a 16 bed pediatric intensive care unit. Both were a first at the Tibetan People’s Hospital in Lhasa. In the first phase of the project, five Tibetan doctors received training. Volunteer doctors from China, Singapore, Malaysia and the United States have donated their time and expertise to save many children’s lives at the facility since its inception. The government also pitched in $800,000 to put the facility in full operation. Now every child up to the age of 18 living in Tibet with congenital heart disease will receive free heart care at this facility.
