Project Danial

Project Danial

One of the main aims of PCHF is to help improve the local pediatric cardiology and cardiac surgery infrastructure in Pakistan. In lieu of this, we are involved in organizing capacity building workshops in collaboration with hospitals/institutions in Pakistan, where CHD treatment is currently taking place.

PCHF Interventional Cardiology Medical Mission 2022

October 2022 – Lahore
The PCHF Interventional Cardiology Medical Mission 2022 was successfully carried out at Children’s Hospital, Lahore. The team of visiting doctors included Dr. Younes Boudjemline and Dr. Saif Ur Rehman from Doha, Qatar. They were accompanied by our local team of Cardiologists led by Dr. Najam Hyder.
Over the course of 2 days, we were able to carry out the successful interventional treatment of 13 deserving children, with the cost of these interventions covered entirely by us. Notably, one of the cases was an LPA (Left Pulmonary Artery) Stenting, with the patient awaiting treatment for the past 2 years.

PCHF Services For CHD Treatment

PCHF is working closely with all major institutions in Pakistan that are involved in the treatment of CHD. PCHF aims to help these institutions improve their quality and capacity, ultimately helping build an infrastructure which can accommodate the huge disease burden of CHD in Pakistan. 

Interventional Cardiology Workshop 2023 - Faisalabad

In partnership with the Faisalabad Institute of Cardiology (FIC), we were able to successfully carry out our 5th Annual Interventional Cardiology Workshop in January 2023 as a part of our ongoing Project Danial’, which is helping improve the pediatric cardiology infrastructure in Pakistan by providing our local Pediatric Cardiologists the opportunity to work alongside internationally renowned doctors.
The local team of cardiologists was led by Dr. Abdul Razzaq Mughal, and they worked alongside Dr. Younes Boudjemline, Senior Pediatric Cardiologist visiting from Doha, Qatar. Over the course of the workshop they carried out non-surgical interventional procedures of deserving children with Congenital Heart Disease (CHD).

In August 2023, having Dr. M. Yasir Qureshi, Director of Fetal Cardiology at the world-renowned Mayo Clinic in Rochester (Minnesota, USA), be a part of Project Danial is undoubtedly an honour for us, and an absolute privilege for everyone who got the opportunity to learn from someone who is known for developing novel cardiac imaging strategies in the field of Congenital Heart Disease (CHD). We are especially thankful to the Armed Forces Institute Of Cardiology for collaborating with us to arrange this capacity-building session.

January 2024: An expert in cardiac imaging, Dr. M. Yasir Qureshi, led a talk on Tricuspid Regurgitation in Ebstein Anomaly, at the Armed Forces Institute Of Cardiology (AFIC), one of our partner hospitals, for local healthcare professionals.
