Making the knowledge and training associated with pediatric liver transplantation accessible to medical centers in underprivileged countries in Latin America and the Caribbean
Fundahigado America was founded in 2011. It is a non-profit tax exempt 501(c)3 created with the purpose of promoting efforts to train healthcare professionals to provide medical treatment for liver disease in underserved areas of the Americas and Caribbean region. We seek to help and train local doctors so that they can perform liver transplant in children and postoperative care, creating a more accessible and less expensive alternative than sending the child for treatment in the US.
In 2004 children with liver disease in Caracas Venezuela had no hope for treatment. Nowadays thanks to the pediatric liver transplantation program Fundahigado, dozens of them have been successfully treated and are living normal lives. Replicating this initiative could bring hope and life to pediatric patients in underprivileged countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Support Fundahigado America and help children that need transplant. Your support will make educational programs that prepare healthcare staff in underprivileged countries to perform liver transplant in children locally possible. It will also help provide medical treatment for children of scarce resources. Please note that all donations are tax deductible.
