Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere.

The United Nations Development Programme estimates nearly 60% of the population live in poverty, with a quarter of Haitians living in abject poverty.

The country’s health system lacks the training and resources to handle the hundreds of new pediatric heart cases each year. The Haiti Cardiac Alliance told Cayman 27 hundreds of children die without treatment, and many more go undiagnosed.

Here in Cayman, Health City Cayman Islands and Have A Heart Cayman have stepped in to provide life-changing heart surgeries for Haitian children…

On Saturday (6 August), four patients were returned home to Haiti after surgery.

Cayman 27’s Joe Avary was on that flight, he joined News Director Tammi Sulliman to discuss the experience.
