Mss Grace Heart valve has failed; She Counts on You!

Miss Grace Heart valve failure; She Counts on You! Donate NOW!

At the age of 12, Grace underwent a heart surgery to correct a heart valve dysfunction. The local community and friend came together to support the surgery. Grace recovered and continued with her education, and Last year, she completed her Kenya Secondary Education scoring 67 points. Her eyes are now set for university Education. Charming Grace wants to become a doctor to help more people suffering from Heart problems. This great desire by Grace to become a doctor is now in danger. She is now admitted at Kenyatta National Hospital in Nairobi after being diagnosed with heart valve failure (Rheumatic Heart Disease) one week ago. Grace has been one of the girls you have always supported to access education. His brother who has disability also benefits from the TYSA projects. The family has gone out of their ways to support Grace and her siblings and life has not been easy as they are peasant farmers. TYSA is proud of Grace and looks at her as the model girls emulate. She is determined and focused. We believe she will change the fortune of her family and the entire community. ‘I am always grateful to you. You have always supported my education through your kind donations. I need your support more than ever before now. I am appealing to you to donate any amount of money to help me undergo heart surgery. No one but you can help me.’ Grace

You can help Grace undergo a successful heart surgery, by making a donation today! The entire TYSA family, community and Grace Family is united in ensuring that she recovers from this condition. We have provided these links with her photos​l, //​ewire/exchange/post/39151
