Our vision is to live in a world where every child has a mighty heart
I’m Belen Blanton, President of Estrellita de Belen Foundation. I was born with a congenital heart defect called tricuspid atresia causing me to now suffer from Eisenmenger Syndrome.
I now dedicate my life to fight for children with congenital heart defects in my country of Venezuela. The situation in my country has more than 4,000 children born annually with congenital heart defects. Eighty percent of these kids require surgery before their first birthday.
Of the 2,000 children currently awaiting surgery, many will die before receiving care. Our foundation provides the resources to aid the families through appointment scheduling, medical supplies, and nutritional supplements, and even necessary procedures to repair their little hearts.
Our vision is to live in a world where every child has a mighty heart.
We work with parents, caregivers, and local volunteers to meet the immediate needs of our little heart warriors. We are committed to the best possible care by identifying the most competent local medical professionals in the region. We are continually growing our support network to reach all areas of Venezuela.
