Bemnet, a little hero saved in Ethiopia

Nov. 19, 2019

Only 3 months old when she was first diagnosed with heart disease, Bemnet was one of many children receiving life-saving treatment during the Save a Child’s Heart mission in Ethiopia in 2019. After being discharged from the hospital, one-year-old Bemnet arrived home and was surrounded by her family. On the road to recovery, she is now full of energy.
