Late spring into summer were very eventful months as several THAP children received much needed heart surgeries and medical treatment as follows:
Baby Victor had catheterization on April 12, 2012 at Mater Hospital, Nairobi Kenya.
Baby Brian received surgery on June 13, 2012 at Mater Hospital, Nairobi Kenya
Joseph received surgery on June 19, 2012 at Aswan Medical Center, Aswan, Egypt through the Chain of Hope.
Mary received surgery in early August 2012 at Mater Hospital, Nairobi, Kenya.
Forty- four children and families received other services that included:
Echograms – 4, Evaluation – 1, Lab test – 1, Medicine – 14
Review – 10, Accommodation at THAP Family Support Center – 14
We just got great news from HeartGift of Austin, Texas that one of THAP’s patients, Ryan, was approved for heart surgery. This is very exciting for everyone and we look forward to reporting on the outcome after his surgery.
Since THAP is growing and the heart program is expanding there is an even greater need to help those on the waitlist; educate local Kenyan communities about heart disease; and provide pre and post-surgery care through the Family Support Center.
CAC and THAP thank you for your continued support as your support is helping change the lives of many deserving families, one child at a time!
