Iasmina

Overview

At eight years old, Iasmina has spina bifida and 15 other diagnosed serious medical conditions. She and her mother spend a great deal of their time in hospitals. Financial help is required to help with their huge medical expenses.

Goals

To ensure that Iasmina, who has spina bifida and other related health issues gets the best possible medical treatment.

Iasmina is aged 9 and was born with spina bifida and a multitude of other health problems. Doctors advised her parents to let her die but mum Adriana said her daughter was a gift from God and fought hard to get her essential medical care. Her father left the family home shortly after her birth. Doctors said she would never walk but such was her determination she was able to run for a while with her special shoes! However, now she can only go out in a wheelchair.

Adriana devotedly cares for her daughter under the most difficult of circumstances.  They live in a small rented apartment and struggle financially. They spend much of their time in hospitals and Iasmina has been at the point of death many times. The medical and travelling expenses are extortionate.

Iasmina is such a happy girl and gives thanks for her life each day. On one occasion when we visited she had just been discharged from hospital with a long bandaged wound on the side of her head. She also had a bag catching fluid from the bottom of her spine. After arriving home from a hospital in Hungary that morning they were leaving again in the early hours for another hospital in Cluj – a 4 hour train journey. However, they were both excited to see us and there was lots of laughter. We have never met such a brave and inspirational pair. Any financial help (whether “one off” donations or regular monthly sponsorship towards medical expenses) would greatly benefit Iasmina and her devoted mum, Adriana.

“And my God will supply all your needs according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus”.
