Some of you might recall Kagna, who we wrote about many months ago. I’m happy to say that she is still with Rahab’s House and nearly at the completion of her studies to be a beautician.
Several weeks ago, we found out Kagna has a hole-in-her-heart, a condition which if left untreated will result in death. Worst of all, it is congenital, meaning she was born with it and had her parents sought medical treatment sooner, it would have been much easier to operate on.
Since her diagnosis, we’ve been doing all we can to make sure Kagna gets the surgery she needs at a trusted medical facility.
Savry, our Assistant Director, has been taking her to weekly appointments since her diagnosis to monitor the condition and make sure it doesn’t get any worse. Here’s where the story takes an interesting turn for the worse (or better, depending on how you look at it). At one of these routine visits, Savry mentioned to the cardiologist that she, too, had been feeling week for most of her life and that sometimes she has trouble breathing. So the doctor took a listen to her heart and found that it beat irregularly. After performing an echocardiogram (heart ultrasound), he concluded that she, too, has a hole-in-the-heart.
Savry is a true Cambodian hero. She works tirelessly every day to restore the hearts and lives of the girls we rescue through our program. She has shown unparalleled commitment to the fight against sex-trafficking since day one.
