Their donation provided medication for Melanie, a 15 year old girl suffering from holes in her heart valve caused by rheumatic fever. The donation also made it possible for her to see a heart doctor for a very much needed echocardiography screening to determine the severity of her rheumatic heart disease.

It was a big relief for Mel and her family to know that her medication is secured for the next few days, but our work isn’t done yet! With her rheumatic heart disease, Melanie is in need of daily pain medication, heart failure medication, monthly antibiotic injections and continuous medical care for the rest of her life. With just a few dollars, you can help provide days worth of medication. If you haven’t had a moment, please make a donation below.
Please feel free to share her link on your facebook, twitter or share her donation widget. We thank you from the bottom of my hearts for any help you can give.
