Dear friends, supporters and fans, we have BIG NEWS for you! J It reflects all the activities we have carried out during the year and a half of the existence of the foundation. We will change the name! The African Heart is changing to the Czech Heart. Our Foundation is a very lively organism that is constantly developing and we are developing with our foundation as well. It is indisputable that support for Africa will continue to be the main pillar of our work, but time has shown us – it won´t be only one. Activities in Nepal and the Czech Republic are clear evidence. During our existence, we met so many good Czech hearts, who want to help where it is needed. So, we do not like to spoil fans and supporters with a name that does not fully refer to our real goals. We would like to thank via our new name for all good hearts that have been involved in our activities; that have supported us since our start, as well as those who will engage in our projects in the future – actively or by no less important financial or material support. We are the Czech Heart which is helping around the world. Helps in Africa, Nepal and it will also help in the Czech Republic. Czech Heart Foundation!
This young man was diagnosed with severe rheumatic mitral stenosis during our screening in Nepal. If not discovered at early stage, this young gentleman would soon develop heart failure and his life expectancy would have been radically diminished. He has been put on rheumatic fever prophylaxis (benzathine penicillin G) and he will undergo surgical valve replacement within 6 months of time, that will be performed by dr. Kaushal Tiwari. Thanks to all in our team Maria Holicka, Tereza Riška Tylečková, Adéla Gábrlíková, Tereza Nováková, Petr Kala, Markéta Rozhoňová.
