AAR Insurance, a reputable insurance company in Uganda providing insurance cover for corporate, NGO and individual medical cover for its clients is going beyond their call of duty in a humane, corporate-centric and compassionate support drive.
Aria Kirabo Migadde, a 1 year and 3 months old girl suffers from mitral valve disease and requires an operation to save her life. She has been attended to at AAR Entebbefor the past 6 monthshowever her condition is still critical.
The mitral valve is located in the left side of your heart between two chambers: the left atrium and left ventricle. The valve works to keep blood flowing properly in one direction from the left atrium to the left ventricle. It also prevents blood from flowing backward.
Mitral valve disease occurs when the mitral valve doesn’t work properly, allowing blood to flow backward into the left atrium. As a result, the heart does not pump enough blood out of the left ventricular chamber to supply your body with oxygen-filled blood.
“This can cause symptoms such as fatigue and shortness of breath. However, many people with mitral valve disease experience no symptoms.If left untreated, mitral valve disease can lead to serious, life-threatening complications such as heart failure or irregular heartbeats, called arrhythmias,” explained DrNazziwa Rose,AAR Entebbe Clinic.
“For any parent, having to watch their child, irrespective of age, go through a grueling order is no easy feat. As AAR Insurance, we are not only friends to the Migadde’s but have grown a closer bond with Aria. Our thoughts and prayers remain with you while in Aria and we are looking forward to your health return,” stated Christine Nassuna, GM AAR Insurance.
“We are eternally grateful- not only for the financial contribution from AAR Insurance but also to their medical teams, continued supervision, updating and oversight of our daughters condition” emotionally remarked Fred Migadde, father to Aria.
