To spread awareness about heart disease, Bai Jerbai Wadia Hospital for Children (BJWHC), has come up with a unique cause ‘Art For Heart’ which was graced by Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt. Seven contemporary artists of the current era displayed their 40 signature paintings of intuitive, meditative, energy, aura, tribal and element series in the painting exhibition organized at the hospital. The funds gathered from this noble cause will be used for children with heart disease at Wadia Hospital.
There are several types of heart disease such as congenital heart defect acquired heart diseases, arrhythmias, cardiomyopathy, and heart failure, which require timely treatment.
