Every year, 1 in 100 babies is born with congenital heart disease, the most common birth defect in the world and the #1 cause of death for children under the age of one. In Lebanon alone, more than1000 babies are diagnosed with heart disease every year. In September 2015 a chapter of ”GOLI" was founded in Lebanon . The Lebanon chapter has had the privilege to partner with the Children Heart Center at The American University Medical Center (AUBMC), the largest Pediatric Cardiac Center in the Middle East.


In 2017 Gift of Life Lebanon signed an MOU with Hammoud Hospital in Saida to service the growing number of refugees in Lebanon. Since 2015 Gift of Life Lebanon has been saving the life of 100 children every year through pediatric cardiac surgeries in addition to our prevention programs and awareness campaign. Our long-term goal is to provide healthcare services to every needy child with congenital heart problems in Lebanon regardless of gender or national origin.
