Moise received life-saving heart surgery.

Moise successfully received treatment for atrial septal defect–a congenital heart condition that caused him irregular blood flow. Our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance (HCA), tells us, “During surgery, the hole between the two upper chambers of Moise’s heart was closed with a patch, and blood no longer flows through it.”

HCA adds that with this surgery, “Moise should be able to lead a normal life with no need for additional surgeries.”

Moise’s mother adds, “We are so glad that everything went well, and would like to say thank you to everyone who helped Moise get better!”

Meet three-year-old Moise. Moise is a shy little boy who lives in Haiti with his mother, father, and two older brothers. Our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance (HCA), shares: “Moise is very close to his family and likes to help them around the house and in the garden.” His parents make a living for the family growing and selling fruit in a local market.

“Moise was born with a cardiac condition called atrial septal defect, in which a hole exists between the two upper chambers of the heart,” shares HCA. “Blood leaks through this hole without first passing through the lungs to obtain oxygen, leaving him weak and sickly. If untreated, the condition could eventually become fatal.”

For $1500, Moise will be transported overseas where he will receive heart surgery. Gift of Life International has contributed $5,000 toward his treatment cost. This surgery will restore normal blood flow to his heart, relieving him of all symptoms.

“We are so very happy that Moise can get his heart fixed so that we no longer have to worry so much about his health,” his mother adds.
