This is Kerrine.

She is 10 years old.

Kerrine lives in a tent with her mom and dad and brothers and sisters in Port-au-Prince. It is very hot in the tent these days.

Kerrine has a congenital heart defect called Ventricular Septal Defect. It is the most common congenital heart defect and is a small hole that allows the lower chambers of the heart to shunt blood in the wrong direction.

She needs heart surgery.

What to do?
