Pihu Devi, 5 years, 8 months
Jammu & Kashmir, India
Treatment: ‘Kawashima Procedure’
Days after her surgery, Pihu was seen skipping around the hospital, overjoyed at her new-found freedom. Sharing her experience, Pihu’s mother emphatically started, “Namaste (Greetings), I am the mother of a heart patient,” before quickly correcting herself, “no no, perhaps I should say… I was the mother of a heart patient. Today I am the mother of a healthy child. I wish to celebrate February 2nd as my child’s second birthday”.
Oluwanifemi Ajoke Solanke, 10 years 7 months
Ogun State, Nigeria
Treatment: VSD Closure + Relief of RVOTO
Coming from a modest family background, Nifemi’s parents fought against all odds to bring her to India for treatment. “I was juggling to raise three other children and could not fund her treatment. I sought the support of friends, relatives and church members to come to India. After receiving free heart treatment in Sanjeevani for my daughter, I feel overwhelmed with gratitude and hope that Nifemi will grow up to serve and help others”
