Hervensley is a toddler from Haiti. He lives with his parents and older brother in Cap Haitien, a city in northern Haiti. He likes playing with toy cars and listening to the radio. Hervensley has a cardiac condition called Tetralogy of Fallot. This condition involves several related defects including a hole between the two lower chambers of the heart, and a muscular blockage of one of the valves.

Hervensley will fly to Cayman Islands to receive treatment. On February 26th, he will undergo cardiac surgery, during which surgeons will close the hole in his heart with a patch, and remove the muscular blockage.

Hervensley’s family needs help to fund the costs of surgery prep. The $1,500 costs include labs, medicines, and check-up and follow-up appointments. It also supports passport obtainment and the social workers from our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance, who will accompany Hervensley’s family overseas. Another organization, Have a Heart Cayman, is contributing $17,000 to pay for surgery.

His mother said, “Our family will be very relieved and thankful when our son is finally healthy!”

Twongirwe

Twongirwe is a 37-year-old single mother to four. She says she separated with her husband who was an alcoholic and not healthy for their family. Twongirwe decided to go back to her parental home with her children. There she earns a living from small-scale farming where she grows food crops to feed her family and children and often sells off the surplus to generate an income. She sometimes works on other peoples farms in case she needs money and to help fund school fees for her children. Twongirwe arrived at the hospital with pain around her inguinal region associated with generalized body weakness and moderate bleeding for three years now. She also has severe backaches. This has affected her work performance since she no longer attends to her farm as her pain worsens when she is cultivating yet farming is her only source of income. Twongirwe went to a local health centre for treatment where she was examined by the doctor who told her that she may have a cyst and referred her to Watsi Medical Partner's Care Center Nyakibale Hospital for further care. There Twongirwe was examined by the doctor who recommended she receive an obstetric scan, which confirmed her cyst diagnosis. The medical team feels she will benefit from a cystectomy treatment for the good and betterment of her health. Twongirwe said: “I expect to get healed from my condition, have a normal health, a new life, and continue hustling to see that my children may grow well and have a brighter future.”
