Save A Child from Heart Disease
Please Help Save Abdulhabir.
Abdulhabir was born with heart disease.
Abdulhadir is a 1 year 3 month old baby with a hole between the two collecting chambers in the heart - an Atrial Septal Defect (ASD). This defect is usually corrected at some point before school age.
His operation was done by the young local surgeon Dennis, without direct assistance of the NCA team. Abdulhadir came out of the operating room breathing without assistance and left the ICU the very next day. Abdulhadir is seen here taking a drink in the ward a few days after his surgery.
Gift of Life, Inc. and Russian Gift of Life USA are helping to fund medical training missions to Voronezh, where Abdulhabir was operated. The first mission took place in November 2013.
