Operation Date: April 17 2017

Grace is a three-year-old girl who lives with her two farming parents, her sister and her brother. They live in the Mwendo area.
Coarctation of the aorta accounts for around 10% of cases of congenital heart diseases. It's where the main artery (the aorta) has a narrowing, which means that less blood can flow through it.
