Thanks to the Genesis Foundation and its CSR partner, Assets Care & Reconstruction Enterprise Ltd. (ACRE), a one-week-old baby girl born with a heart defect has been given a gift of life. Her father, a hardworking driver, was unable to afford the life-saving procedure, but the Genesis Foundation stepped in to make it possible.
The baby was born with Interrupted Aortic Arch A-P window, a defect that kept oxygen-rich blood from reaching all parts of her body, putting her life in jeopardy. But when she was brought to Artemis Hospital in Gurugram, a team of medical experts, along with the Genesis Foundation and ACRE, were determined to give her a chance at life.
“This was a high-stakes operation, but we’re proud to have corrected this critical heart defect for this baby girl,” said Dr. Aseem Srivastava, Head of Pediatric Cardiac Surgery at Artemis Hospitals.
ACRE funded the procedure as part of their ongoing mission to improve healthcare through their CSR initiatives. Together with the Genesis Foundation, they have already given over 80 children with heart defects a gift of life. “We’re grateful to be a part of this life-saving mission,” said Mr. Jatin Mahajan, Senior Manager at ACRE. “Here’s to a bright and healthy future for this precious little one.”
