CHIME – CHILDRENS HEART INTERNATIONALE MIOT
CHIME is a Charitable Trust established by MIOT Hospitals to provide funds for FREE HEART SURGERIES FOR NEEDY CHILDREN suffering from CONGENITAL AND RHEUMATIC HEART DISEASES.
“CHIME is today that ray of Hope in the lives of these children. It is the compassion and concern of our Patrons and Donors which has indeed given a flourish to our commitment – Your compassion which has created such wonderful ripples – from the smile on the face of a happy child to the joy and relief it brings to the family.”
Mrs. Mallika Mohandas
Chairman, MIOT Hospitals
CHIME in association with MIOT Centre for Children’s Cardiac Care organizes free camps in and around South India to identify underprivileged children with congenital heart disorders and conditions whereby they are in need of immediate or imminent heart surgeries. CHIME reaches out to different districts not only to conduct camps and identify children who require free heart surgery, but also to dispel fears and superstitions about congenital heart diseases among people and pave the way to a healthy life for future generations.
CHIME organizes a Free Heart Camp at MIOT Hospitals – Chennai every year on Children’s Day, when children can walk-in and take advantage of the free check-up, investigations and perhaps even receive free treatment depending on their socio-economic status.
