An indispensable aid for operating on children.


1 out of every 100 children in the world is born with a malformation cardiac

They weren't lucky enough to be operated on in their own countries, but we repaired their hearts in France or Switzerland.

Our mission

Offer them the best

Every year, Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque finances heart surgery for over 400 children living in countries where surgery is not possible due to a lack of technical and financial resources.
How do you operate on children?

"A child's heart is a work of art that needs to be repaired.
If we have chosen to operate on children in France or Switzerland, it is to ensure them the impeccable quality of care we would all wish for our own children."

Pr Francine Leca, Founder of the association Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque
