Forty-five Tibetan children with congenital heart disease began to receive free medical treatment in Henan province on Wednesday.

Due to factors in the Tibetan plateau's climate, such as low oxygen, the Tibet autonomous region has one of the highest rates of congenital heart disease in China.

Since 2012, the Chinese Red Cross Foundation has been organizing medical teams to conduct screening work and provide free medical treatment.
