Jasibe, who is only four months old, lives with her mother, grandparents and three older siblings in the mountains above La Paz, Bolivia.
Jasibe was born with a hole between the two lower chambers of her heart, and a leak between two of the major blood vessels near her heart. As a result, blood doesn’t flow normally through her body, and she struggles to breathe and to gain weight.
Fortunately, our medical partner is here to help. On April 5th, doctors at Hospital del Niño Dr. Ovidio Aliaga Uría will perform surgery, and repair both of these defects, so that blood can flow normally through Jasibe’s body. Now she and her family need your help to raise $1,500 for this life changing procedure.
Jasibe’s mother said: “Our family is praying that after this surgery our daughter will become healthy and will be able to gain weight!”
