Arabesque is proud to support Chain of Hope. Launched in 1996, Chain of Hope has been working with world-renowned cardiac surgeons and medical teams to treat children from war-torn and developing countries who would otherwise find it almost impossible to receive the treatment they need.
Chain of Hope does this by conducting teaching and training missions at cardiac units that it supports around the world; these both treat children and provide onsite expertise and teaching for local cardiac teams. The charity operates an International Child Referral Programme, which transports children to Chain of Hope’s partner centres around the world for emergency, life-saving cardiac treatment.
Chain of Hope was founded by Professor Sir Magdi Yacoub OM, FRS, in 1996. Sir Magdi was inspired by La Chaîne de l’Espoir in France, created in 1988, and worked alongside its founder Professor Alain Deloche to create Chain of Hope as an independently run charity in the UK.
It is estimated that as many as 15 million children die or remain severely ill every year from potentially treatable or preventable cardiac diseases. Through teams of pioneering medical professionals, Chain of Hope brings life-saving heart treatments to children in more than 43 countries. It’s vision is for all children around the world to have access to the cardiac treatment that they so desperately need.
Arabesque are delighted to be the lead sponsor for the Chain of Hope Gala Ball 2017, which will be headlined by Jamaican superstar Sean Paul. Arabesque’s sponsorship of the event is part of our ongoing partnership with Chain of Hope, which has also included over the past year fund-raising from of our team, and participation in other events by Chain of Hope.
