July 5, 2017

Carlos is a 14-year old student who lives in an orphanage on the southern coast of Haiti. Carlos is currently in the eighth grade and would like to become a doctor or an engineer when he grows up.

Carlos suffers from mitral and aortic regurgitation, both of which resulted from the rheumatic fever that he contracted several years ago. Due to his conditions, blood backs up into his heart and does not properly circulate throughout his body, leaving Carlos weak, short of breath, and at risk of heart failure.

Our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance, is requesting $1,343 to cover the cost of Carlos’s air transportation to the Cayman Islands, where he is scheduled to undergo heart surgery on July 5. Once there, he will receive the care that he needs and will hopefully be able to live more comfortably.

Carlos says, “I am very happy that I can have this chance to heal my heart, and would like to say thank you to everyone.”
