Small Big Hearts Foundation


Project ACP was established in the beginning of 2017 in Dallas, Texas. The idea of the project was first provided by Dr. Malgorzata T. Gajda, MD, a practicing pediatrician. The objective of the Project ACP is to provide funds for the training of a team of Polish physicians by the team of physicians organized by Dr. Jeffrey Fearon, MD, FACS, at Medical City Children’s Hospital located in Dallas, TX in highly specialized procedures and care for children with complex anomalies.
The mission of the Project is not only to provide funds for the training but also to help
build a team of highly trained and experienced physicians, practicing in Poland , who would meet international standards by undergoing a professional external evaluation and certification by ACPA-CPF.org. More information about ACP .
