Kervenson received heart surgery to repair blood circulation throughout his body.

Kervenson’s mom is so happy to share, “Kervenson has so much energy now, I don’t know what to do with him! He’s like a different child!”

Kervenson is a sweet and curious boy who loves to play with stickers. He is five-years-old and lives in Haiti, where he’s always by his mother’s side.

Kervenson was born with a congenital heart defect called tetralogy of fallot, which prevents proper blood circulation between the chambers of his heart. Our medical partner says, “As a result of this condition, he is constantly sick and fatigued without the oxygen his body needs to function well. He is also at constant risk of sudden death from the condition.”

Fortunately, Kervenson has received $15,000 for surgery to fix his heart in the U.S. But he’s counting on Watsi donors to raise another $1500 for surgery prep and transportation to the hospital. “I am scared to get on a plane and go with him for surgery, but I put everything in the hand of God and know all will be well!” his mom says.

Let’s help Kervenson out so he can grow up healthy!
