Jothi - Atrial Septal Defect

Jothi is 14 years old. But she doesn’t go to school – because she must work in the quarry along with her mother to earn enough money breaking rocks to put food on the table.

How could she think about having her congenital heart defect treated, when the cost was as much as FIFTY times their monthly family earnings?

That’s where the power of a generous group of CHD donors from around the world comes into play. Funded by the Dr.Mani Children Heart Foundation, Jothi had her open heart surgery on February 28th, 2009.

You, and other people like you, helped change her life. Thank you!
