At Island Green Power, we take great pride in sponsoring Fundacion Relieve, a remarkable organisation devoted to creating positive change.
The Spanish organisation, Fundacion Relieve, wants to act for and bring change to the most vulnerable people in Latin America. The organisation is dedicated to actively defend the interests of those who need it most; especially women and children.
Fundacion Relieve has a program to assist children born with congenital heart defects. Children born with these defects require corrective heart surgery in the early stages of their lives. Without this surgery the unfortunate reality is that these children will die from heart failure.
Fundacion Relieve has a program which provides access to surgery for these children which is not available in the countries they are born in. This program involves the children and parents flying to Madrid, Spain to have surgery in Hospital Universitario La Zarzuela(Sanitas Hospitales).
Jassiel Alejandro Munguia Valeriano
Jassiel Alejandro Munguia Valeriano, 15 days old, was born in Honduras with severe congenital heart disease (“D-Trasposición de Grandes Vasos (D-TGA)”). As the Honduras Health System does not have the capacity to execute surgery for this heart disease, Jassiel was urgently transported to Spain. In April 2021, the paediatric cardiac team at Hospital Universitario La Zarzuela (Sanitas Hospitales) in Madrid successfully operated on Jassiel. Island Green Power fully funded the cost of Jassiel ́s surgery.
Emma Abigail Maradiaga Granados
Emma Abigail Maradiaga Granados, 2 years old, was born with severe congenital heart disease (“Tetralogia de Fallot”). The hospitals in Honduras did not have the ability to help Emma. Fundacion Relieve ensured that Emma was transported to Sanitas Hospitales in Spain where she was successfully operated on April 12, 2021. Island Green Power fully funded the cost of Emma’s surgery in Hospital Universitario La Zarzuela.
