Signs of Hope

Post-surgery Patients Doing Well
Post-surgery Patients Doing Well

During the past two months, Take Heart Association Project (THAP) personnel in Kenya impacted the lives of 46 patients and families in a variety of ways.

In early March, seven patients ranging from 2-17 years, who suffered with Congenital and Rheumatic Heart Diseases, underwent evaluation and cardiac reviews, and received successful heart surgeries and/or interventions at the Tenwek Hospital in Bomet Kenya. Patients, accompanied by THAP personnel were driven from the Family Center in Nairobi to the hospital in Bomet.  Most of these patients whose young lives were deemed hopeless, now have good prognoses, are healing well, and looking forward to leading normal lives.

On March 31, one patient who had an Ebstein Anomaly with severe Tricuspid Regurgitation received successful surgery at the Wolfson Medical Center in Israel. In early April, THAP Executive Director Peter Kamau escorted one patient to Tanzania for special diagnostic tests at the Children’s Cardiac Center.

Thirty-seven (37) other children and families received services, and support to improve health and diet during this period that included: Medicine 11; Reviews 7; tests 2, and Accommodation at THAP Family Support Center 17.

THAP and CAC wish to say a hearty "Thank you" to all donors and well-wishers who contributed to ensuring these children enjoy healthier lives and hopeful futures.. We could not have done this work without your continued financial support. We look forward to continued partnership and helping more children.
