Gurugram,Oracle in collaboration with Genesis Foundation announced its continued efforts to support heart surgeries for under-privileged children suffering from congenital heart defects (CHD) throughout the country.
The program named “Project Little Hearts” takes a holistic approach supporting surgeries with a dedicated grant of USD 100,000 and raising awareness and funds through events to be organised in the year. Together, the grant, and a series of awareness events aim to support the surgeries of more than 150 children.
“Every year, an alarming number of children are born with CHD and many don’t survive due to lack of awareness and timely intervention.
Project Little Hearts aims to make a positive impact by raising awareness about heart care, the importance of implementing a more active, healthy lifestyle, and mobilizing a larger community towards the cause,” said Rajendra Tripathi, Senior Manager – Oracle Corporate Citizenship – India.
“Given that saving precious life precedes all, Genesis Foundation has been instrumental in supporting pivotal surgeries across the country,” said Prema Sagar, Founder Trustee, Genesis Foundation.
