Supporting children with Congenital Heart Disease
Amelia Matters is an organisation that helps to support children who suffer from Congenital Heart Disease (CHD). By educating and raising awareness we hope to help children living with a CHD and their families.
Our aim is to supply those children in South and West Wales, who are on lifelong anticoagulants, with small machines to check their warfarin (INR) levels at home. This helps relieve stress on the child and family by eliminating trips to the hospital which can sometimes mean loss of wages and time away from their family. Since September 2011 to date we have been able to supply over 200 of these machines to families in need.
