Impelsys has joined American Heart Association in their Saving Children’s Lives initiative. This drive is an effort to help decrease mortality of children under five, in India. More than 6 million children around the world die every year before they reach their 5th birthday. Approximately 20% of these deaths (around 1.34 million) are reported in India alone, mainly from common preventable and treatable illnesses.
For this project AHA plans to send trained US-based volunteer physicians to India to train local community and hospital healthcare providers in communities in need. Impelsys will match up to USD 15,000 in donations to support this lifesaving effort.
