We are starting new fundraising for Muhsina! The money is needed urgently!

The girl is in the Saint-Petersburg City Children’s Hospital with post-surgery complications (pulmonary venous stenosis). Doctors say it is a miracle she survived transportation to the hospital. Muhsina is on the intensive care, her condition is critical, the heart is failing. She needs an urgent surgery that costs 236,000 rubles (7,700 US dollars). We only have several days to come up with money.

Muhsina had her surgery last Thursday, and today she has been moved to a recovery ward with her mom. The doctors were able to completely fix the anomalies, the girl is healthy and won’t need further surgeries.

Muhsina was operated on June 3rd. Today the girl is on intensive care, plugged to a machine for artificial lung ventilation. Doctors believe her condition is stable.

We thank everyone who was able to help Muhsina. She was hospitalized last Friday. Her mother and grandmother are with her, they are looking forward to the life-saving surgery for their little girl and are sure everything will be all right. We will monitor Muhsina’s success and let you know about all the changes.

Muhsina’s diagnosis was crushing news for her family. They already knew what congenital heart disorder means, they have lost their older son to it. The first and foremost question was where to take the girl. In Uzbekistan such surgeries have been performed on several children, none of whom survived. In Russia there is more experience in treating children with total anomalous pulmonary venous connection, and the survival numbers are higher. The problem is that surgery in any Russian clinic will not be free for Muhsina’s family, because they are foreigners.

The doctors from Saint-Petersburg City Children’s Hospital studied Munsina’s ultrasonic data and decided that the surgery is needed as soon as possible, while the girl can still handle transportation and the operation itself. The doctors are waiting for her by May 21st, they will conduct pre-surgical examination for several days and then they can operate. If girl’s parents find the money. Muhsina’s father is a teacher, her mom stays at home with kids (they have two children), their income is small. They need to pay 284,000 rubles (9,300 US dollars), it would take them years to save that much.
