August 1, 2017

Sialu is a four-year-old girl from Sierra Leone. She lives with her parents and large extended family. Sialu is always smiling and making new friends in her neighborhood.

Sialu was born with a heart condition called Tetralogy of Fallot, where there exists a hole between two chambers of her heart and a muscular blockage in one of her valves.

On August 10, Sialu will be traveling from her home in Sierra Leone to our medical partner’s care center, Narayana Institute Of Cardiac Sciences, in Bangalore, India. Although Sialu is not from Haiti, our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance, is collaborating with other partners to make her surgery possible, and so is asking for $1,500 to help cover the cost of Sialu’s surgery prep. Another organization, Have a Heart Cayman, has contributed $12,000 towards her treatment. We are also fundraising for her transportation costs.

“We feel like our prayers are being answered now that we know our daughter is able to have surgery soon!” says Sialu’s mother.
