HKIE supporters take a bow! You again helped to save a child's life!!!
This is 5 month old Reyna following her kidney surgery.
HKIE was informed by Hospital Metropolitano in Quito, in April, that there was desperate need for a baby to have emergency surgery to prevent renal failure. Unfortunately little Reyna also had a high fever which prevented the immediate surgery. She was admitted to ICU until she was out of danger and put on medication to stabilize her and was watched closely for weeks.
Two weeks ago she had her surgery and the doctors were able to save her kidney. As you can tell, that is one extremely happy and thankful mom!
Thanks again to all our supporters who made this happen, and to Fundacion Metrofraternidad in Quito for covering half the hospital cost, and the doctors who perform these miracles at no cost.
