From Dina's little heart

Dina is all smiles again
Dina is all smiles again

Dear friends, thank you for your ongoing commitment. With your support, we continue changing lives of children in Moldova. In February through April, you donated $2,875 and we were able to assist a few children, including Sebastian S., Kirill N., Nikita V. and Vanya S. The biggest amount of your donation went to Dina C., a 2-year-old with congenital heart defect.

Dina had her first heart surgery when she was only 5 months old. The surgery was too exhausting and brought no results. Dina spent months in recovery. She could not gain weight and developed breathing problems. No help was on the way and Dina’s parents started looking for alternatives abroad. They found a hospital in Germany that agreed to operate their daughter. The 12-hour surgery in Berlin transformed the girl: she began developing and eating well, the breathing problems were gone. A warming smile and rose cheeks reappeared on Dina's face.

In June, Dina is traveling to Germany for a follow up operation and we will be transferring a prepayment to the German hospital. We hope that this operation will be the last one in Dina’s life.

Thank you for your care and your generous gifts. The smiles on children’s faces and reassuring hope in hearts of their parents are the best appreciation for our collective efforts.
