Saving Children … One Little Heart at a Time

Victor Nyaga in 2005, Today

Victor was first diagnosed with heart problems at a very young age. Thanks to the Gifts of Life of New Jersey and Northeastern Ohio, our friends at The Heart Association Project (THAP) were able to bring Victor to the U.S. in 2005 for heart surgery at Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital in Cleveland, Ohio. The successful surgery was performed by the late Dr. Hani Hennein, who went on to lead four medical missions to Nairobi to perform surgeries and train Kenyan medical personnel and serve on the THAP-USA board. Today, Victor is doing well in school and continues to be monitored by the THAP-Kenya staff.
