About the foundation

The purpose of our foundation is to help pediatric patients after heart surgery and their families to make the best of the surgery and stay in our Department of Pediatric Cardiac Surgery of the Children’s Heart Center. Sometimes it lasts for several weeks or even months. In our department, we operate on more than 300 children with congenital heart defects every year.

At the same time, we provide individual assistance to small patients with the most severe forms of congenital heart defects, who often undergo repeated and complex heart operations with us. At the same time, every year we organize events for our young patients with their families from the funds of the foundation – International Children’s Day, Nicholas Day or Christmas carols with Lúčnica.

The Happy Hearts Foundation also created its own Project As a Bell, the aim of which is to increase the percentage of successful prenatal diagnosis of heart diseases and to increase the awareness of mothers about the need for this examination. At the same time, we are trying to expand the network of gynecologists and radiologists providing quality and reliable examination and to support them.

90% of the foundation’s budget is allocated to the support of patients and the department, 10% of the budget is used for the running of the foundation.

The foundation is financed by sponsorship donations and 2% of the tax.

Thank you for your support.
