Keeping Hope Alive!
Families and patients of Take Heart Association Project (THAP) had joyful hearts and revived hopes by receiving critical surgeries, interventions, medicine, evaluation, and support. During the past months, four (4) patients Grace, Gian, Safi, and Adhi received much needed surgical interventions to correct heart anomalies of regurgitation, stenosis, and atresia of the valves. Patient Grace underwent surgery in January. Patient Gian had surgery in March. Patients Safi and Adhi had successful procedures in April performed by a visiting medical mission team, Healing Little Hearts at MP Shah Hospital in Kenya. Sixty-six (66) other children and their families got much needed help during this quarter in the form of: Reviews – 29, Medicine – 24, Accommodation at THAP Family Care Center – 13.
THAP has been helping sick and desperate children with heart anomalies in Kenya get urgently needed care for 27 years. THAP has assisted over 1,200 children and their families with surgeries, interventions, medicine, food, personal care packages, support, and accommodation, to enjoy healthier lives. But there are many more children on a Waiting List that need our help. This period 12 new patients were added to the list.
This period, the Family Care Center welcomed Dr. Zaf and 2 patients -Baby Ami and Baby Tami and their moms. The group was in-transit to India from Sierra Leone when baby Ami took ill during the trip. She was admitted to Mater Hospital in Kenya. Upon baby Ami discharge and travel clearance, Dr. Zaf and the group continued their journey to India.
Children & Charity International (CAC) and THAP continue to forge ahead with services and support for children and families in Kenya. THAP and CAC are grateful to all partners, funders, and supporters that continue to believe in its work and the impact it has on many lives. Your continued donation to this worthy cause is truly appreciated. Partnerships and support from benefactors are pertinent to growth in our organizations. Thank you.
