Programs:  

Our work in Jamaica commenced approximately 10 years ago.  Many children there were dying needlessly from congenital heart disease due to the lack of trained local surgeons, doctors, nurses and a facility to adequately care for them.  Our goal was to teach the local medical professionals to provide the necessary care for these children thus leaving a self-sustaining program.  In addition we facilitated yearly medical missions to perform life-saving heart surgery to these children.  I am happy to report that we are beginning to see significant positive changes in Jamaica. There is now a fulltime pediatric cardiac surgeon, dedicated nurses, and other medical professionals are being trained. Within the next 5 years this center will achieve its goal of self-sustainability. 

Mission:

The Caribbean Heart Menders Association (CHMA) is a 501 © 3 non-profit organization established in 1994. Moved by empathy and compassion, this organization was formed to address the critical needs of children suffering and dying needlessly from congenital heart disease. Our mission is to alleviate this suffering.
