Compassion for Achile

I just received an email from Compassion International and this little guy needs our help!
Achile is an 8 year-old little boy in Burkina Faso with a congenital heart defect known as Tetralogy of Fallot. Because of Achile's heart condition, he has been in pain for 5 years and hasn't been able to attend school regularly and receive the full benefit of sponsorships through Compassion International. Compassion International has provided medical care for Achile for the last 2 years at the National Teaching Hospital Yalgado Ouedraogdo in Burkina Faso in western Africa. However, doctors there now believe his condition requires urgent heart surgery, which is not available in Burkina Faso. Achile will be transported to a specialized hospital in India for a lifesaving operation that will cost an estimated $20,449. You can help this sweet little boy by donating at this site.. Please keep him in your prayers!!
