EHM Partner Performs Life-Saving Heart Surgeries in Mongolia

Our Every Heartbeat Matters’ partner, Heart Saving Project (HSP), is a Japanese non-profit organization in which Japanese pediatric cardiologists and anesthesiologists travel to Mongolia to conduct heart screening and catheterization for children and educate local doctors. A long-term goal of HSP is to train and support pediatric cardiologists in Mongolia on how to perform life-saving heart surgeries. When COVID-19 prevented such in-person missions, they created new ways to assist in vital surgeries through live, video-sharing technologies and telemedicine. Pictured is a surgery in process in the city of Ulaanbaatar.
