THE mother of a four-month-old baby girl is seeking financial assistance of $13,700 (about sh23m) for the baby to undergo open-heart surgery in India.

Merian Namirembe, was diagnosed with tetralogy of fallot, a congenital heart disease, at the Uganda Heart Institute in Mulago Hospital on November 1.

“The doctors told me that she has a hole in her heart and that one of her arteries is too small to pump blood,” said Juliana Musoke, the baby’s mother, a resident of Mutungo, a city suburb.

The institute’s deputy director, Dr. John Omagino, recommended that the baby be flown to Frontier Lifeline Cardiac Hospital in India for surgery.

Contributions can be deposited on account number 3020101592 at Centenary Bank main branch, Kampala.

Well wishers can also call Musoke on 0712-524806 or the baby’s grandmother, Grace Mukasa, on 0772-465400.
