Betty at her home

Five year old Betty was born in a poor neighborhood in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. At a very young age Betty was diagnosed to be suffering from a serious congenital heart defect which severely limited her most basic physical activities. Betty was facing a gloomy, short future as her physical condition would deteriorate unless treated. Heart surgery, widely available in Western countries, could save Betty's life but is not available in Ethiopia due to lack of facilities and knowledge.
