When Faud started noticing he was always short of breath and could barely walk up the hill to his home, he went to the hospital for a checkup. Doctors found that he had mitral stenosis–his heart wasn’t able to pump enough blood to his body. They gave him a ten per cent chance of survival, a near death sentence for someone living in extreme poverty.

But Compassion helped Faud get the surgery he needed in India. The surgery was a success and now Faud is a healthy 17-year-old. His favourite subject in school is physics, and he hopes to study medicine when he graduates.
