Rehiwilzahra underwent heart surgery.

During surgery, doctors removed the muscular blockage from Rehi’s valve and closed the hole in her heart. Her heart is now able to pump blood throughout her body with strength and she will no longer experience symptoms from this worrying condition.

Her mother told us, “I am so happy to see that my daughter is healthier and more energetic since her surgery!”

Rehiwilzahra is a sweet toddler from Haiti. She lives in Port-au-Prince with her mother, father, and three older siblings. Rehiwilzahra likes watching cartoons and playing with her older siblings.

Rehiwilzahra has a cardiac condition called Tetralogy of Fallot. This heart condition involves several related heart defects including a hole between the two lower chambers of the heart, and a muscular blockage of one of the valves. These defects prevent blood from circulating properly through the lungs leaving Rehiwilzahra weak and short of breath.

The surgery Rehiwilzahra needs to heal is not available in Haiti, so she will need to fly to the Dominican Republic to undergo cardiac surgery to close the hole in her heart with a patch and remove the blockage from her valve. Our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance is helping Rehiwilzahra’s family raise $1,500 to cover the cost of labs, medicines, and follow-up appointments. This amount also supports passport obtainment and the social workers to accompany Rehiwilzahra’s family overseas.

Rehiwilzahra’s mother shared, “We have been praying for a long time for a solution to our daughter’s heart problem. We are very thankful to everyone who is helping her!”
