Meet four-year-old Angeline from Haiti. “Angeline is a very quiet and sweet girl, who is shy around new people but very attached to her mother,” Haiti Cardiac Alliance (HCA) tells us. “She likes listening to music and playing with her older brother. She hasn’t yet started primary school, but will start next year once her heart is fixed.”
“Angeline was born with a condition called pulmonic stenosis, in which a muscular blockage prevents blood from flowing freely into the pulmonary artery, causing it to back up into the heart,” HCA writes.
Luckily Health City Cayman Islands has stepped up with $5,000 to help fund the cost of the surgery Angeline needs. “Following surgery, Angeline should have normal blood flow through her heart, and should not experience any ongoing symptoms from her condition,” HCA continues.
$1,500 will cover the rest of costs associated with Angeline’s care, including overseas prep and transport. “I want to say thank you to everyone who is helping Angeline have surgery,” says Angeline’s mother. “God will give you all blessings!”
Together we can make sure Angeline gets the care she needs to be healthy.
