Join the Cardiac Alliance

Save lives all over the world; wherever a child is in need of a lifesaving heart surgery.


Join us for an international humanitarian campaign to purchase life-saving heart medicine for Zimbabwean children suffering with heart disease.

NCA’s June goal: $10,000 USD

Novick Cardiac Alliance was contacted earlier this year by advocates of children with heart disease based in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. Their simple request: help them secure life-saving heart medications which are prohibitively expensive or unavailable in their country. NCA made a snap decision to support this critical undertaking, knowing that our global community can make a huge difference in a child’s life.

Throughout the month of June, Novick Cardiac Alliance will be raising funds to purchase and deliver these life-saving heart medications to the many children of Zimbabwe who are born with heart disease. Just $2500 worth of medicine can treat approximately 30-40 children for up to three months! Absent of NCA providing “hands on” cardiac surgery through our medical trips, your generous contribution to this international humanitarian effort will save a child’s life in Zimbabwe.

Please press the orange button below to contribute to this important cause. No amount is ever too small, and we are grateful for your participation. To all of our NCA community: thank you for your enduring support throughout COVID-19. Let’s remain close while we're apart.
