Alexandro is a two-year-old boy from Haiti. He lives outside of Port-au-Prince in a very full house, enjoying the love and company of his father and mother, along with a number of aunts, uncles, and cousins. He is a happy and curious child who likes listening to music and playing with his toys.
Alexandro was born with a cardiac condition called ventricular septal defect. This means that there is a hole between the two lower chambers of his heart. Blood leaks through this hole without first passing through his lungs to obtain oxygen, leaving him sick and short of breath.
Our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance, is requesting $1,343 to pay for his transportation to surgery. He is scheduled for treatment on June 8 at our medical partner’s care center, Health City Cayman Islands.
“I am hopeful for my son’s surgery,” Alexandro’s mother says. “So he will have more energy and strength!”
