We traveled to Kosovo, where little Blerondi is waiting for us with tears in his eyes and prays for our help. He lives with his family in Peja and is only 8 years old, but his life is in danger. He suffers from a serious illness that causes very strong epileptic seizures. He was only 2 and a half years old when he got his first epileptic seizure and since then they have gotten worse.
“As Blerond’s condition worsens, he must undergo an operation immediately. I ask all Albanians to help me because the amount of intervention is very expensive and we have nothing left,” says the father in pain.
Doctors have suggested that Blerond surgery should be done as soon as possible, in order to remove a mass that has caused and is causing persistent epilepsy. The more time passes, the more the 8-year-old’s health is endangered. The only way to save his life is to carry out an operation in Turkey. The operation costs 32 thousand euros, but the family is in very difficult economic conditions and can not provide this amount.
“I feel very lost, it’s better to be dead than to see your child like that. His health is very serious, there are times when the seizures happen 10 times a day and they are uncontrollable. I stay with him everywhere, I even go to school so I can take care of him. Because it is not known when or where the seizures will happen to him,” said his father.
Like any child, Blerondi has dreams, dreams that depend on us. His parents beg for help, as their son’s recovery is in the hands of Albanians!
