A Graphic Designer to Help with Projects and Annual Report

Save to Favorites

Team Heart, Inc.

Screening Program
Two young boys waiting their turns to be screened for rheumatic heart disease, a disease almost eradicated in the developed world. But in Rwanda, the result of untreated strep throat, it is the leading cause of death in heart disease.

We have the content and we have wonderful photographs, but not the expertise to reach people and make them want to open their checkbook! We think there is a special place for graphic designers...and we need your help to tell our story. If you have put together an annual report in your past, that would be great...however there is a first time for everything.

A great eye for color and appeal is critical and attention to grammar and detail important. Willingness to make adjustments until it is right. This could be a one time volunteer effort, or it could be ongoing as we always need help with brochures, timelines etc. This is step one to saving lives in Rwanda because it helps us communicate to our donors what we do and why we do what we do!

About Team Heart, Inc.

Location:

1150 Walnut Ave, Newton Highlands, MA 02681, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to improve access to cardiac care in Rwanda. That includes working to establish a sustainable regional center of excellence in cardiac care in Kigali. To prevent advanced rheumatic heart disease through a combined effort of surveillance, prevention, education and early intervention as an example of effective countrywide intervention against rheumatic heart disease that can inspire replication in sub-Saharan Africa.

Description

TeamHeart is a volunteer organization based in New England, founded in 2007 to provide surgical intervention for young adults and adolescents suffering from critical rheumatic heart disease. Early in the process, we realized we could be a catalyst to support and stimulate a program to provide prevention and early intervention while helping to build a program in cardiac surgery. Our program has evolved into a comprehensive plan to address all aspects of rheumatic heart disease in partnership with our Rwandan colleagues.

In addition to providing surgical intervention to those selected for our surgical trips, the diagnostic screening of patients is completed by our cardiology team with an emphasis on knowledge and skill transfer. Initial testing, evaluation, and follow-up are completed in the country by our Rwandan colleagues as partners.

Highly trained professionals in medicine, nursing, and support services are needed to provide mentorship, skill transfer, and the safest care possible travel to support the work or connect through technology. Each traveling medical volunteer raises funds or pays for travel and donates vacation time. Through a memorandum of understanding with the Ministry of Health, our activities are collaborative and work with the local team.
