"Saving Little Hearts" program was started on 1st July, 2006 (also marking the formation of Rotary India Humanity Foundation) when Baby Bisakha Hela was successfully operated upon. Our Rotary member, Dr. Ram Pal Vidhawan, a cardiologist by profession, expressed his desire to use his medical expertise and operated six heart surgeries. With the assistance of Shekhar Mehta (who was the then Past District Governor), 75 little hearts were healed surpassing the set target which was an achievement in itself. Dr. Bimal Khetawat also joined in and the trio achieved 150 surgeries in a span of two and half years. This journey started on a grand note and we aim at improvising the quality of service with every passing day.

This flagship project of Rotary India Humanity Foundation (RIHF) aims at healing thousands of ailing little hearts by providing free surgical attention to those children who are at the bottom of the social pyramid. Over the last 3 years, 3000+ heart surgeries have been done for those children falling within the age group of 0-18 years at well-reputed hospital all across India. The cost of a heart surgery can go up to Rs. 2 Lacs that is in sharp contrast to the meager earnings (not more than Rs.2000 per month) of the parents of the beneficiaries.
