Anitha Jennipe

This is Anitha.  She is 9 years old and was born with a congenital heart defect.  Her parents could not afford treatment and India’s poor have essentially no access to health care.  A few years ago, her parents were killed in an accident and she now lives in the Global Grace Children’s Home in Sarpavaram, Andhra Pradesh, India.  In July 2016, she was in constant pain, struggled to breathe, and needed immediate open heart surgery.  Because of our generous and fast-acting donors, Anitha had surgery on August 2, 2016, and despite some complications, was discharged from the hospital within a month.  She has fully recovered and returned to a normal life.
