Medjine is a toddler from Haiti. She lives with her parents and grandparents in the outskirts of Port-au-Prince. She likes dancing and listening to music. Medjine has a cardiac condition called partial anomalous pulmonary vein return. One of the veins leading to her heart connects in an abnormal location, making it difficult for blood to circulate properly through her heart and body.
To determine if Medjine’s condition is operable, she must undergo a diagnostic cardiac catheterization, a procedure that is not available in Haiti. During the procedure, a catheter probe will be inserted into her heart to perform the necessary measurements and tests. On December 14, she will travel to the Dominican Republic to receive the scan at our medical partner’s care center, Clinica Corominas.
Our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance, is asking for $1,500 to cover the costs of Medjine’s travel expenses, catheterization procedure, and lab work.
Her mother says, “We are very glad that our daughter can have this opportunity!”
