The Fortis Foundation and Being Human-The Salman Khan Foundation have come together to create a heart-warming initiative, The Little Hearts Programme, to provide free treatment to children with congenital heart defects.

Launched on May 1, a day after the inauguration of its flagship facility - Fortis Memorial Research Institute, Gurgaon (FMRI) – the joint initiative will leverage Fortis’ network of hospitals across the country including the latest facility.

FMRI offers super-specialisation in oncology, trauma and paediatric care with embedded centres of excellence at the hospital in neurosciences, minimal access
surgery, cardiac sciences and orthopaedics.
 
“Over 50 children have already been treated within six few weeks at the Fortis Hospital in Mulund, Mumbai, and at FMRI” the healthcare group claims.
 
Being Human-The Salman Khan Foundation conducts eye camps to address preventable blindness, partnering with MDRI (Marrow Donors Registry India) to help build a marrow registry in India and now, partnering with Fortis Foundation in the area of paediatric cardiac care.

Fortis Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Fortis Healthcare Limited has been involved in a number of social initiatives to support the community by providing health services and subsidised medical care to the socially and economically marginalised sections of the society.
