The Bolivian Children's Heart Foundation is devoted to the improvement of the medical care of children with congenital or acquired heart disease, in addition to those with vascular pathologies. 

The indigenous Aymara women have centuries of experience of knitting and weaving distinctive woolen hats, sweaters and blankets. Now, they are applying their expertise to a hi-tech medical product - which is used to seal up a "hole in the heart" which some babies are born with.
