The Children's Fund of Ethiopia is dedicated to promoting and supporting good health in children in Ethiopia, through healing, education, partnerships and compassion. Their mission is to provide financial assistance, expertise, and other resources to programs in Ethiopia that take care of children, particularly the poor, with no other resources to obtain necessary medical treatment. This group does phenomenal work helping children obtain medical treatment. Accriva was happy to donate Hemochron ACT tubes to the mission. The Cardiac Center of Ethiopia, which opened in 2009 on the grounds of the Black Lion Hospital in Addis Ababa, is where the group performs cardiac surgeries and procedures. In the latest mission in 2016, the group performed 11 heart surgeries and 15 cardiology procedures. This is where medical testing supplies, like those from Accriva, are being used to help save lives.
