Alexandro is a happy and curious two-year-old boy who lives with his large family in Haiti.
Alexandro was born with ventricular septal defect, a cardiac condition in which a hole exists 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.
Although Watsi has already funded Alexandro’s transportation to the hospital for his surgery, he is still in need of $1,500 to cover medications, heart surgery prep, and exams. Working with our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance, the organization, Have a Heart Cayman, is subsidizing the rest of the cost of the procedure to be taken place on June 14.
Alexandro’s mother says, “I am hopeful for my son’s surgery so he will have more energy and strength!”
