Nataly Isabella is deaf from birth, and needs a cochlear implant to be able to hear. Unfortunately, such a procedure is not available in her home country.
When Nataly’s mom first finds out that her daughter cannot be treated in Honduras, she is heartbroken. “I couldn’t bear it, I thought that she would never be able to hear me say “I love you”, or listen to my lullabies, or hear balloons popping at her birthday parties” – Jensi Carolina, Nataly Isabella’s mom.
Flying Angels receives Nataly’s call for help, and quickly arranges the young girl’s journey to Barcelona, where she can be treated in a specialised hospital.
Nataly travels to Barcelona with a trusted family friend, as her mom is pregnant with another baby girl, and is not fit enough to fly. Nataly’s stay in Barcelona is really important to her family: everyday, her mom is updated on the surgery, which is carried out smoothly, and on the girl’s well-being and progresses.
After her surgery, the girl can hear sounds for the first time in her life. It is an emotional experience for everyone involved, and the beginning of a new and more fulfilling life.
Nataly is excited to go back home, she can’t wait to hug her mom again! Once she is back, her family is overwhelmed by happiness.
