On behalf of the family, I take this opportunity to thank you for helping Moses to get his heart surgery at Uganda Heart Institute Mulago. You have given his heart an opportunity to continue pumping and you have put a new smile on his face. I can’t say thank you enough but to pray that God will continue blessing you and providing for the organization as it continues to gift other children with good health and life. May God’s treasures continue overflowing in your resources and may more wisdom abound to you. Moses says thank you and continue to bless more lives.
