The family of Mr. & Mrs. Peter Gichure Maina is appealing to well-wishers to help them raise sh.2 million to enable them save their daughter Baby Hope Waithera's life. Baby Hope (4 months) needs to undergo an urgent heart surgery in India. 

Baby Hope was diagnosed with a Type 1 Trincus Arteriosus, a heart defect she was born with. The surgery to correct this condition cannot be done locally since the conduit, which is needed, is not available in Kenya.

The doctors in Kenyatta National Hospital who did the diagnosis advised an urgent surgery at Narayana Hospital, Bangalore in India to avoid more complications or eventual death. 

The amount required is approximated at Ksh. 1,950,000 as follows:-
- Evaluation & Treatment sh 1,500,000
- Air Ticket (2 adults + one kid) sh. 220,000
- Visa charges (3 travelers) sh. 30,000
-One month Accommodation &  expenses sh. 200,000

Mr. Gichure is a casual driver with no regular employment while his wife, Ruth Michiro is a housewife. This young family reside in Kiganjo Estate, Thika West.

Through their own simple ways, they have already managed to raise about sh. 100,000 from friends and relatives. Their pursuit to get funding from charitable institutions and local leaders has not bore any fruits and this is now getting them worried.

They have organized a harambee on 1st November 2015 to help raise the remaining amount.

Well-wishers can deposit their donations in Gichure's Equity Bank Account No. 02 30 19 52 20 654.

You can also contact them on 0717 497 496 (Peter) or call Ruth on 0726 706 739.
