Moisa received life-saving heart surgery.

“During surgery, the hole in Moisa’s heart was patched closed, and the blockage in her valve was removed,” shares our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance. “Blood now flows normally through her heart and circulates to her body. She should not require any more heart surgeries in the future.”

“Moisa has a lot more energy since her surgery,” says Moisa’s father. “She loves to play and run around.”

Meet Moisa, a two-year-old toddler from Haiti. Moisa was born with a congenital heart disease called Tetralogy of Fallot, which causes a hole to form between two chambers of the heart and causes a muscular blockage in one of the heart valves. “As a result, blood cannot circulate normally through her body, and she is at constant risk of sudden death,” says our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance (HCA).

Moisa was born with down syndrome, and she lives with her parents and three older brothers. “Although she has special needs, she is fully involved in the life of her family and has many friends in the neighborhood,” shares HCA. Moisa likes to wear pretty dresses and play, especially blowing bubbles.

For $1,500, Moisa will receive the cardiac surgery she needs. Following the surgery, she will no longer have cardiac symptoms or be at risk of sudden death. “Moisa makes everyone smile when they are around her,” expresses her mother. “We are so happy she is getting the surgery she needs!”
