Over the years, we’ve received the help of many generous partners. Together, we’re saving 300 children every year.
Heartbeat has become a regional reference for the treatment of CHD and it will be contributing to raising the level of medical education in this field in the entire Middle East.

No matter how much time and effort I dedicate towards helping the cause of Heartbeat, I still feel the urge to do more. The reward? What could be better than knowing that your time and effort went towards mending little broken hearts!
Maxime Chaya, Heartbeat Ambassador
To live a Heartbeat concert is a real treat, especially since all the funds raised are entirely committed to the noble cause of saving children.
