Gift of Life Los Angeles Overview
Target demographics: Impoverished children ages 0 - 17 years around the world.
The mission statement for the Gift of Life - Los Angeles is to help save the lives of children suffering from Congenital Heart Disease, and other related illnesses, who lack access to medical and/or financial resources regardless of race, gender, creed, or other national origin. We are also of the belief that to truly heal the heart of a child, we must ensure their health and well-being and provide the necessary assistance to build a healthy future for these precious children.
Gift of Life Los Angeles has saved the lives of more than 200 children who suffer from congenital heart disease while our parent organization of Gift of Life International has given the gift of life to over 12,000 children who otherwise would have perished. Sustainable programs are being developed around the world with the current focus being Uganda, El Salvador, and Jamaica.
