Jacinta is an eight-month-old baby girl born with Down syndrome, a large VSD (large hole in the heart), and a PDA (an opening in the pulmonary artery that usually closes shortly after birth).

They discovered her heart problem after a friend noticed Jacinta had difficulty breathing.  She recommended that they take her to the clinic to be examined.  They were referred to Uganda Heart Institute, where they discovered her heart conditions.  

Her father is a teacher, and her mother takes care of Jacinta and her five siblings.  Money is tight, and they have no way to pay for a $12,000 heart surgery.

This experience has not been easy, but it has made them see God's love and mercy because Morning Star Foundation picked their child from among many children who need heart surgery.

Thank you for your prayers and support that make all of this possible!
