Kela is faithful disciple who's parents, who live in Albania, both have life-threatening illnesses. Kela's mom is suffering from kidney issues and her dad is in desperate need of open-heart surgery. The medical care where her parents live is very marginal and different from what we are blessed with here in the United States. Her dad was sent home while still in critical condition and with very severe heart damage as well as other organ issues. The hospital there has lost its generators so they cannot preform any surgeries. They struggle to meet basic human needs, even water for hospital patients is left to the families to bring. The system there requires the citizens to pay for everything upfront, including medical care. As you can imagine, open heart surgery is very expensive. Kela needs to raise the equivalent of $7,000 in order to perform his surgery. This amount is needed by next week so her father can get back in the hospital and have his life-saving surgery. If you are able to help us meet this goal, please consider giving. We know there are fees involved so we are trying to raise $8,000 to cover fees and any other unexpected costs that might come up while waiting for the surgery. Please consider donating, even a small amount will add up. We ask that you share this with friends who might be able to contribute as well. Thank you so much for your heart to help and to save Kela's dad's life.
