Our Operation BraveHeart follows children's journeys into cardiac surgery and recovery until they are well. We work to better understand these families' cultural and social backgrounds, the child's pathway in and out of care and in so doing find out what meaning they give to the operation and care they receive. In this way we hope to ensure that cardiac surgery and after care is optimal and by following their eventful lives we know that they are more likely to lead full lives and get further treatment if they need it. By aiding a child's health and well-being, Operation BraveHeart alleviates the burden and stress that the illness may bring to their families and at the same time maintains excellent hospital and home based care for children. Operation BraveHeart currently works closely with the doctors and nurses in Cardiac Units in Cape Town and Sydney, Australia to achieve these aims but wishes to expand its cardiac care project.
