The parents of this child are Ufitegihoza Félicité and Murekamanzi Cyprien who live in Huye sector, Rukira cell, Agahenerezo village in Huye district, Southern province. The parents say that they took the child to Kabutare Hospital because that is where he was born, and transferred to the University Hospital known as (CHUB).
He said, “We arrived at CHUB and they transferred us to the CHUK and they transferred us to the Kanombe Hospital, then they transferred us to the King Faisal, who stayed there for two months and the results showed that he is suffering for tetralogy of fallot.”
He said, “All the resources we had are finished because it is so expensive to take care of the child that the hospital has nothing to help us and we pay a lot of money. When the child is three months old, they notice that there is a gap in the heart, the doctors tell us that when the child is born, all organs are not closed properly, but when he cries the gap closes immediately and nothing else is done, it is saved by crying when the child is born.”
For now, in Rwanda there is no assistance about Tetralogy of Fallot. The doctors told them that the Intracardiac Surgery for kid is possible in India.
The cost this Intracardiac Surgery, is fifteen millions Rwandan Francs (15.000.000 Rwfrs equal $15,000 USD).
The support from brothers, sisters, family members and their friends is three millions two hundred and sixty thousand (3.260.000Rfws).
