You Are Not Alone Foundation, a film by Sylvie Boulloud

Film by Sylvie Boulloud provides a moving introduction to Lola Karimova-Tillyaeva’s You Are Not Alone Foundation’s efforts to save lives of Uzbek children born with serious heart defects. Through the documentary we meet French cardiac surgeons who work alongside local specialists and their young patients, children from some of Uzbekistan’s poorest families, a truly heart-warming story.

Since 2015, with the backing of the You Are Not Alone Foundation, French cardiac surgeons have carried out over 130 operations on children with complex congenital heart conditions, all of whom come from Uzbekistan’s low-income families and orphanages. With the Foundation’s support, 21 of these operations were carried out in France.
