A 1-week-old baby girl born with a critical heart defect was given a second chance at life thanks to the Genesis Foundation and its CSR partner, Assets Care & Reconstruction Enterprise Ltd. (ACRE). The baby was born with Interrupted Aortic Arch A-P window, a defect that prevents oxygen-rich blood from reaching all parts of the body and can lead to severe symptoms like congestive heart failure.
Despite the dire situation, the baby girl was brought to Artemis Hospital in Gurugram and was in need of a life-saving corrective surgery. Her father, a hard-working driver, was unable to afford the cost. That’s where Genesis Foundation stepped in, providing the funds for the procedure and giving the baby girl a chance at a new life.
“This was a high-stakes operation, but we were determined to give this little one a second chance,” said Dr. Aseem Srivastava, Head of Pediatric Cardiac Surgery at Artemis Hospitals. “Thanks to the generosity of Genesis Foundation and ACRE, this baby girl now has a new heart and a new life.”
ACRE funded the procedure as part of their ongoing commitment to healthcare through their CSR initiatives. Together with Genesis Foundation, they have already given over 80 children with heart defects a new lease on life. “We are honored to be a part of this life-saving mission,” said Mr. Jatin Mahajan, Senior Manager at ACRE. “Here’s to a healthy and happy future for this precious little one.”
