A 5-month-old Kostya no longer suffers from heart defect. How to apply for help?
The Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center continues to help children with serious heart diseases from Donbass. Within the framework of the project ‘Healthy Heart’, 18 children with heart defect have already undergone surgery. All surgeries are performed using sutureless endovascular technique, which makes it possible to help little patients to forget about their terrible diagnosis forever and recover quickly after surgery.
So, on August 21, a 5-month-old Kostya Medvedev from Oktyabrskoye village (Donetsk region) was operated at Amosov National Institute of Cardiovascular Surgery.
Kostya suffered serious health problems shortly after his birth. After examining his heart, local doctors discovered a heart defect and advised to seek help from Amosov National Institute of Cardiovascular Surgery. In Kiev, the diagnosis was confirmed and it was strongly recommended to have surgery. But, unfortunately, parents of the boy did not have money for expensive surgical interference.
The Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center showed a keen interest in rendering assistance and allowed for heart surgery. Everything went perfectly; the doctors managed to install occluder, a special device for ventricular septal defects closure. Now there is no threat to the child's life.
‘We cooperate with the best medical centers in Ukraine. The doctors, who work there, are real professionals. Throughout its existence, the Humanitarian Center helped more than 3500 children from Donbass to receive medical treatment and rehabilitation. Within the framework of the project ‘Healthy Heart’, 18 surgeries were performed to eliminate heart defect,’ Igor Khadzhinov, head of the program ‘Targeted Aid’ of the Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center, noted.
Within the framework of the project ‘Healthy Heart’, children under the age of 18 living in Donetsk, Lugansk, Kharkov and Zaporozhe regions can get help. You may leave an application for such help by calling the hotline of the Humanitarian Center: 0-800-509-001.
