Deziranta is a 60-year-old loving wife and mother. She and her husband work as farmers for a living, growing crops for home consumption and selling the surplus for income. The couple has four sons and four daughters. One of their sons works as a policeman and two of their daughters also work, while the other children are still in school. In her free time, Deziranta enjoys weaving mats, which she sells for additional income.

For about five years, Deziranta has been experiencing uncomfortable symptoms, including a mass in a sensitive area, bleeding, and lower abdominal pain. Unfortunately, she has been misdiagnosed in the past and treated with no improvement in her symptoms. However, on her most recent visit to our medical partner’s care center, she was examined and diagnosed with cystocele and partial uterine prolapse. Surgery was recommended to treat her condition.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Deziranta receive treatment. On September 8th, she will undergo a hysterectomy at AMH’s care center. Now, she needs help raising $243 to fund her procedure and care.

Deziranta shared, “I hope I will get better after the operation. I hope to continue with farming once I recover and provide for my family.”

Emmanuel

Emmanuel is a 17-year-old student from Haiti who hopes to become a doctor. He lives with his aunt and uncle in a neighborhood of Port-au-Prince so that he can more easily attend school, as his parents live in the countryside. Emmanuel has a cardiac condition called rheumatic mitral regurgitation, which means one of his heart valves was severely damaged from an infection he experienced in early childhood. In 2017, Emmanuel underwent heart surgery to repair his existing valve. This surgery stabilized his heart for several years, but the valve remains unable to pump blood adequately throughout his body. Emmanuel needs to undergo a second surgery to replace the valve with a prosthetic heart valve. Emmanuel will fly to the Dominican Republic to receive treatment, as this surgery is unavailable in Haiti. On November 10th, he will undergo cardiac surgery, during which surgeons will remove the damaged heart valve and implant a replacement valve. An organization called Mitral Foundation is contributing $8,000 to pay for help pay for surgery. Emmanuel's family also needs help to fund the costs of surgery prep. The $1,500 bill covers labs, medicines, and check-up and follow-up appointments. It also supports passport obtainment and the social workers from our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance, who will accompany Emmanuel's family overseas. Emmanuel shared, "I am looking forward to growing stronger and having much more energy after my surgery!"
