Send Christmas Cards to Children Recovering from Congenital Heart Disease


Since everyone is writing Christmas cards to their loved ones, we thought it would be wonderful to have christmas cards written to the children with congenital heart disease each year and even a penpal program next year.


We have 89 children cured of congenital heart disease and plan to keep a strong relationship with these children for as long as possible. We also plan to have summer camps and many different projects for them in the future.  We hope they will give back to their local communities in the future.


Please pick a child or a few to make Christmas Cards. Email the # of the child you are writing cards for so we can keep track of those who still need cards. Language barrier is also an issue.  Letters and Cards can be hand written or electronic.  We have a group of translators to translate these cards to Chinese, and we will attach these translations to the cards. Vice versa.


Please send your cards to 上海市闸北区芷江中路531弄10号402室乙 and ecards/eletters to

The bread is the food parents bring for their children after surgery. The muddy water is the family's only source of drinking water.
"This reminds me of the scene in the hospital, they dip the dry bread with water and then use only this for after-surgery nutrition for the children to eat." --Amy Chao
