MEDRIX sponsors heart surgeries for  children in Vietnam whose families can’t afford to cover the medical expenses. As an organization working to save and improve lives, we strongly believe in providing disadvantaged families and children with hope and a healthy future. We partner with other organizations and surgeons in Vietnam to assure these children will receive the best of care and the best atmosphere for a successful surgery: all while being close to home for the best possible outcome.

As of 2023, MEDRIX donors have sponsored more than 200 heart surgeries

Thousands of children in Vietnam younger than five years of age suffer from heart disease. Children’s heart disease is the most common birth defect globally and 90% of the children born in developing countries have no access to the care they need. With labored breathing and lack of energy, these children are not able to attend school and run around and play like other children. Many are stuck in hospital beds spending all their energy on taking their next breath. Even if a child has access to the care they need, too often the family can’t afford to pay the medical expenses. MEDRIX sponsors life-saving heart surgery for poor children who desperately need it and whose families can’t afford it.
