It's the time of year for Emergency USA's Under One Blue Sky day of peace and fundraiser! Emergency provides high-standard, free-of-charge healthcare to people in conflict zones and underserved communities around the globe. Emergency has been providing this critical care for 20 years and has treated over six million patients.

Operating Emergency's hospitals and clinics requires financial support so for this year's fundraiser, Seattle Emergency volunteers plan to raise $2500, which is the approximate cost of a heart valve replacement operation performed at Emergency's Salam Centre for Cardiac Surgery in Sudan. The Salam Centre is Emergency's attempt to address the problem of advanced rheumatic heart disease in Africa. Globally, hundreds of thousands of people, most of them young, die from rheumatic heart disease every year. Rheumatic heart disease is a complication from untreated strep throat and, after a certain point, the only option for treatment becomes open heart surgery. The expense of heart valve replacement surgery is far beyond the means of the average African and that means enormous numbers of parents have to watch their children die every year simply because they can't afford to pay for the treatment.

However, Emergency does not accept this situation and we believe that everyone has the right to advanced, high-quality medicine. The Salam Centre is one of the few free-of-charge surgical centers on the continent of Africa where anyone can get life-saving open heart surgery. But running the hospital does take money from generous donors like you. Please help Team Seattle raise the $2500 needed so we can save a life!
