Zahara is the Foundation’s first beneficiary from outside South Africa to receive open heart surgery. The 7-year-old from Accra, recently took her first airplane ride to Durban where she was treated for severe mitral valve regurgitation, a condition in which her heart’s mitral valve didn’t close tightly, allowing blood to flow backward into her heart. A team of over 10 volunteer surgeons, pediatric and cardiac doctors, percussionists, anesthetists, nurses as well as other support staff worked together to perform her life-saving surgery, more than 3 years after her initial diagnosis. Today, almost 3 months after her surgery, Zahara is back at school in Ghana – a healthy little girl, ready to face her future with excitement.
