Tanatswa Oliver Chikomwe, 7, with his friend Fana in Mabyuko, in a suburb of Hahare.

Tanatswa was operated on in 2012 at the Sant’Orsola-Malpighi Hospital in Bologna (condition: severe aortic insufficiency and impaired left ventricular function. Aortic valve replacement).

While the operation was successful, he will probably have to undergo a second operation and will require follow-up appointments every two years.
