Build a world where all children have a mighty heart



Our heart foundation is working to make a better world for those children in Venezuela suffering with congenital heart disease. Far too many children are born in our country with heart defects. This disease is a leading killer of children in Venezuela.

We are a non-profit foundation in the USA dedicated to help children with congenital heart disease living in Venezuela. The Estrellita de Belen Foundation is a member of the World Heart Federation and of Global ARCH (Alliance for Rheumatic and Congenital Hearts).

Fundación Estrellita de Belén works to make a better quality of life to these children by making care accessible and giving hope to those who would not have hope . Our heart charity foundation links these children to caregivers and support to provide the necessary life giving care.

About congenital heart disease

Congenital heart defects form in the early stages of pregnancy when the fetus’s heart is forming. It is the most common form of birth defect, effecting over 6000 babies born annually in Venezuela. Children with heart defects are often at lifelong risk for other medical problems and even death.

Caring for these children with heart defects is a challenging and complex struggle causing emotional and financial stress resulting from the ongoing medical care and treatment.
