The effect of donations
Donations raised by the Gesellschaft der Freunde des Deutschen Herzzentrums Berlin e.V. help to pay for heart surgeries and the support of families. They are also used for research on the improvement of treatments at the Deutsches Herzzentrum Berlin.
Moreover, publications and presentations promoting the consulting of affected patients and families are financially supported.
