Enelo underwent heart surgery.

During surgery, doctors used patches to close the two holes in Enelo’s heart. He should now be able to live a full and normal life with no further danger from this condition.

Enelo’s mother shared, “My family would like to say thank you to everyone who helped save my son’s life!”

Enelo lives in a small town in southwestern Haiti with his mother and father; he is their first child. Shortly after birth, he was diagnosed with two holes in his heart: atrial septal defect, between the two upper chambers; and ventricular septal defect, between the two lower chambers. During surgery, doctors will use patches to close both of these holes so that his heart can pump blood normally.

Peter

Peter is a 42-year-old father who lives in Kenya but hails from the neighboring country Uganda. With no formal education, Peter works as a casual laborer, mostly working in people's farms to meet his daily needs. He is a father of three children, aged between 4 to 13 years old. He lives with his family here in Kenya in a rented single room in Chesoi village. Peter works hard but shared that his family struggles financially. None of his children are able to attend school, and his eldest son always accompanies him to the farm to help his father meet the needs of his younger siblings during these difficult times. On September 21st, Peter presented to the hospital late at night with complaints of abdominal pain and left inguino-scrotal swelling. Initially, the swelling was improving but has since worsened, becoming very painful. When Peter arrived at the hospital, he was walking in a stooping posture due to abdominal pain he has. An ultrasound confirmed irreducible inguinal hernia and was told that he needed to undergo an urgent herniorrhaphy. Because he had no money for the surgery, Peter considered postponing this urgent surgery, which doctors told him would be a dangerous move. Fortunately, the hospital enrolled him with Watsi and he slept at the hospital awaiting his treatment. On September 22nd, he'll undergo his much-needed surgery. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMH), is requesting $631 to fund Peter's surgery. Peter says, “My hope is to get treated. I want to be well and continue supporting my family.”
