Giving Hope to Akiela

Each and every week we see incredible needs. Recently, we all felt we should stop for this one. Two weeks ago we met a 3 year old little girl in an orphanage. She has heart problems and some other issues.  She is beautiful in every way.  Her heart condition was worsening, but there were no resources in place to enable her to be taken to the hospital for treatment. However, that all changed.

On Thursday, little Akiela taken to Bishkek hospital and will get some much needed medical attention.  Because of the gifts some of you gave to us for humanitarian use, we will be able to provide 10 days of personal care for this beautiful little girl. Thank you to those who made this, and many other things, possible and thank you for sharing the journey with us.
