"The UGoL training program helped to enrich my knowledge and practical skills and I will now share this experience with my colleagues. On behalf of all doctors and children of Ukraine, I would like to say thank you very much for the great work you do," reported cardiologist, Dr. Olha Kuryliak, upon completing OpCOT training, Mar 2003

v         Operation CHILD CARDIO CARE Ukraine (OpCCCareUA) meets needs of children whose surgeries can be performed in Ukraine but whose families cannot afford cost of surgery.

v         Operation CHILD CARDIO CARE US (OpCCCareUS) meets needs of children whose surgeries cannot currently be performed in Ukraine.  

v      Opportunities for CARDIO Observation and Training (OpCOT) fosters projects to provide skill and technology enhancement for medical professionals in Ukraine.
