Reymi is a three-year-old boy from the Dominican Republic. He lives in Santo Domingo, the capitol city, with his mother, father, and four older sisters. He enjoys playing video games with his sisters.
Reymi was born with a heart condition called Tetralogy of Fallot. A set of four related birth defects, this condition has left him with oxygen-poor blood. As a result, Reymi is often weak and prone to illness. If left untreated, the condition will eventually lead to death.
Our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance, is requesting $1,500 to support Reymi’s preparation for surgery. They are joining these funds with the contributions of Gift of Life International, who are supplying $8,500 for the surgery itself. Reymi is scheduled for treatment on May 19 at our medical partner’s care center, Hospital Pediatrico Robert Reid Cabral. After surgery, Reymi will be able to grow strong and healthy.
“I would like to ask for God’s blessing on everyone who is helping Reymi have this surgery,” his mother says.
