Chapter: Houston


Stephen came to Houston in December of 2015.  When five year old Stephen arrived from very rural Uganda he struggled to walk very far and needed a stroller for his doctors' visits.  After his open heart surgery, Stephen was a whole new boy.  Before returning he was playing like your average five year old.  Today Stephen is still thriving, attending school and helping his Father farm the land.


Hawa- Ten year old Hawa from Kenya had lifesaving heart surgery on February 23, 2017.  She is doing well and is slated to return home on March 15th.  We are grateful to Houston's First Baptist Church and G&A Partners for helping with her surgery.


Siyileni – One year old Siyileni arrived from Malawi Africa very underweight.  After six days of consistent feeds at the hospital she was able to undergo heart surgery on March 1, 2017.  She is doing well and growing more every day.  Thank you to the HeartGift Baja Racing Team and the Houston Associate of Malawians.  


On March 2, 2017 HeartGift Houston hosted the 2nd annual Songs for the Heart event.  HeartGift welcomed great Country Music singer/songwriters:  Megan Linville, Danny Myrick, Aaron Benward and David Lee.  Thank you to the Houston chapters' board of directors for making this successful fundraiser possible.  

HeartGift Houston's mission is to provide lifesaving heart surgery to  children from around the world where specialized medical treatment is either scarce or nonexistent.
