Support for Team Heart

Since 2007, Team Heart has been working in Rwanda to deliver life-saving cardiac care. Team Heart provides direct care, education, and skill transfer, all while helping Rwanda plan for a sustainable cardiac program. But we need your help to continue our work! We partner with local caregivers to provide prevention programs, outreach, and scholarships- and none of this would be possible without your support.

Surgical Travel – Support a Volunteer

For each trip to Rwanda, Team Heart volunteers raise money to support their travel, in addition to donating their vacation time. All of our generous volunteers also raise money to help pay for much needed medical supplies. For some, this might be their first year traveling with Team Heart, and for others- they are returning for their 10th or 11th trip! But for all involved- it is life changing. Help us by helping our volunteers travel to save the life of a very deserving patient!

Team Heart is 501 c 3 organization registered in Massachusetts since 2009. Our EIN is 27-1435443.
