History

Congenital anomalies of the heart are among the most frequent malformations. They occur in 1% of all newborns and are the first cause of death before the age of one year. Unfortunately, all children are not alike in illness: they do not have access to the same standards of care; and because of lack of funds, some are condemned to die. Faced with the injustice that hits these seriously ill children, a group of doctors came with the idea of establishing a chain of solidarity to save them.

Mixing the pleasure of music with the serious business of cardiac medicine and surgery to fight this inequality, they threw their first concerts and treated a handful of children. Officially recognized as an NGO in 2005, Heartbeat now counts on the talent, support, and commitment of more than 100 people every year to pursue its mission, and treat more children in need.

volunteers

These volunteers, whether known or anonymous, artists or surgeons, nurses or businessmen, bankers or designers, students or professionals, all come together every year, and gave with great enthusiasm and generosity, to make sure that those little hearts keep on beating.

This is our spirit and motivation

Combine medical excellence with the joy of music to rekindle the flame of life in the little hearts of our children.
