Sabiolie received life-saving heart surgery.

“During surgery, the defect in Sabiolie’s heart was closed and blood no longer flows through it,” reports our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance. “She should be able to lead a normal life with no further cardiac symptoms.”

Sabiolie’s father adds, “I could see right after surgery that Sabiolie became pink and healthy. It seems like a miracle to me.”

Meet Sabiolie, a 7-month-old baby girl, who lives in rural Haiti with her parents and four older brothers and sisters.

Our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance, tells us, “Her parents are both farmers. Sabiolie has Down syndrome and her parents and older siblings are very devoted to caring for her. She is a very happy baby and has made friends with all of her nurses and doctors.”

“Sabiolie was born with a cardiac condition called ventricular septal defect, in which a hole exists between the two lower chambers of her heart,” Haiti Cardiac Alliance explains. “Blood leaks through this hole without first passing through the lungs to obtain oxygen, leaving her sickly and weak. If not corrected with surgery, this condition would eventually be fatal.”

Sabiolie has received a $5,000 donation from Health City Cayman Islands for cardiac surgery. We can raise another $1,500 to cover the cost of the overseas prep and transportation. Haiti Cardiac Alliance tells us that post-surgery, “Sabiolie should have normal circulation to her body and no further cardiac symptoms.”

Sabiolie’s father shares, “We would like to thank God, the doctors and nurses, and everyone who is helping Sabiolie to get better.”
