Volunteers Around the World is raising funds to cover the heart surgery of Abrandy from Dominican Republic. It is our goal to raise at least $15,000 to cover Abrandy’s surgery, transportation and recovery. Read Abrandy’s story below!
Abrandy Collado and her family live a small town outside of Jarabacoa in the Dominican Republic, where medical care is very limited. When Abrandy was 1 month old, her parents realized she was turning blue and purple and it was very hard for her to breath. They desperately raced to the hospital for help, but when the doctors saw the little baby they said that there was nothing they could do with the resources available at the local hospital, so they put her on oxygen and sent her to the bigger hospital in Santiago, a city 45 mins away.
