Each year, almost 8,000 Thai children suffer from congenital heart defects. Nearly half need surgery to prevent death or serious physical limitations. However, most of these children come from impoverished families in rural areas who cannot afford the high cost of treatment. In addition, public hospitals have limited funding and many needy children face long waits to receive critical operations.
As part of their commitment to corporate social responsibility and the welfare of Thai society; the Bumrungrad Hospital Foundation and Bumrungrad International Hospital, through its team of pediatric cardiologists and surgeons, provide operations at no cost to underprivileged Thai patients.
Since the inception of the project in 2003, more than 720 underprivileged children from 50 provinces in Thailand have received heart surgeries. Currently, the average cost of surgery per case is about 650,000 baht.
The "Rak Jai Thai" or "Healing Hearts" program is a joint effort of the Bumrungrad Hospital Foundation and The Cardiac Children Foundation of Thailand.
The Bumrungrad Hospital Foundation was established in 1990 as a non-profit organization with the objective of enhancing and promoting the quality of life of underprivileged Thais so they may enjoy better health and living conditions.
