ETHIOPAN CARDIAC CENTER HISTORY
The Children’s Heart Fund of Ethiopia (CHFE) was established in 1989 G.C. as a non- a governmental and charitable organization focused on helping children with coronary illness. From its foundation, it has set out characterized prompt, moderate, and long-haul targets to save lives from heart disease and educate the society on causes of the disease. In its quick and halfway destinations, CHFE figured out how to work for around 5,600 patients both in abroad and privately welcomed clinical missions. CHFE has accepted that in the initial two targets have been finished with momentous employment.
Since 2009 CHFE has shifted its attention to embark up on its long-term objectives i.e. to establish a sustainable cardiac center and launched different programs to realize these objectives under the one and only Cardiac Center-Ethiopia located at Black Lion Hospital, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
The center came to life with the contribution of the public society, Addis Ababa University and Chain of Hope, a charity organization in UK.
The Work Has Began
The Ethiopian Heart Patient Resource Center presented me with a certificate of recognition and appreciation for my volunteer ambassador yesterday. I have great respect for this.
Although I have had many successes and joys in my career and personal life, I have no greater joy than being chosen to serve my country. I candidly thank the Heart Center for giving me this great responsibility, believing that you can help. Although success has many meanings
I believe there is no better success on earth than doing something meaningful for others. I have worked with this centre for many years, especially ten years ago, and I am tremendously happy to be involved in a huge fundraising event called One Birr for One Heart. That spirit of cooperation has built this noble centre. Those who did not finish; Tired of queuing; Suffering from pain; How can you fall asleep when you see babies crying?
Once again, I respectfully call on my people – to work together to repair the broken hearts of the children in the traditional Ethiopian way of helping. “The God of heaven will set us free, and we, his servants, will rise and work.” Nehemiah 2:20
