MAY – JULY 2017

On the weekend of May 1st 2017, a new step of the Transplant project was achieved. This mission, led by Professor Henri Vacher-Coponat, together with the Professor Lova Randriamanantsoa’s Nephrology Department at the HJRA public hospital, was successful. Thanks to this mission, a whole network developed to make life win.

Even if Tsarà’s technical team is ready, the next step will require even more solidarity, since any risks from the patient or his/her donor shouldn’t be overlooked. 

Transplant is not allowed yet in Madagascar, Tsarà is taking over with its international medical team.

Presentation of the project
Tsarà’s mission is to help renal insufficient people in Madagascar. The association is currently preparing its very first major action: kidney transplant on a Malagasy renal insufficient patient in June 2017 [Edit from May 2017 – initially in June 2017]. The goal is to allow the transplant’s generalisation for compatible patients and donors.

As transplant is not allowed yet in Madagascar, this first operation will take place in Palestine with the support of our international medical team. The patient and his donor are ready and compatible, but unfortunately can’t afford the 6 to 7 weeks of dialysis before the transplant. {Edit from May 2017:  after completion of the pre-transplant assessment, the patient’s file planned for June could not be validated, due to another pathology detected very last minute. Tsarà’s and the HJRA Hospital’s medical teams are currently looking at and studying other compatible patient/donor’s files].

The goal of this fundraising is to take charge of the care’s cost, otherwise the transplant would not be possible anymore. This fundraising will also allow the whole preparation of the transplant project. The professor Henri Vacher-Coponat will travel to Madagascar to make a patient/donor evaluation in April 2017. The professor Lova Randriamanantsoa from Antananarivo’s public hospital will then accompany the later in Palestine, where the transplant will take place.

In the meantime, Tsarà is organising humanitarian event throughout the year to finance its actions. The next event will take place on 21 October 2017 in Villemur sur Tarn, France, on the occasion of Mahaleo’s 45th anniversary.

Origin of the project

Tsarà Association is involved with Antananarivo’s public hospital to bring:

  • material help (dialysis machines);
  • healthcare and medication;
  • technical help for kidney transplant.

Help through material shipment, healthcare and medicated have progressed since 2012. Today, we believe that kidney transplant can be made thanks to the help of the Hébron hospital, Palestine, who will welcome us free of charge for fifteen days.

This hospital is equipped with operating rooms compliant with standards. This will allow our medical team to start working, waiting for the State of Madagascar to authorize kidney transplant in Madagascar.

How will the money raised be used?

The money raised will allow to bear the cost for:

  • The professor Henri Vacher-Coponat’s expenses: roundtrip The Reunion Island/Madagascar, food expenses for 4 days;
  • Expenses for care of the future transplanted person and his dialysis fees for 6 to 7 weeks prior transplant;
  • The professor Lova Randriamanantsoa’s expenses: roundtrip Madagascar/Palestine and accommodation expenses for 2 nights.

Our team

Tsarà is founded upon a strong team of volunteers and partners, in France and abroad.
Our medical team is composed of:

  • Professor Henri Vacher-Coponat, nephrologist
  • Professor Lova Randriamanantsoa, nephrologist
  • Doctor Raouf Salti, urological surgeon
  • Doctor Rakotobe Andrianabela, neurologist surgeon and Honorary President of Tsarà
  • Partnership with the Hébron hospital (Palestine) and its director,
    also nephrologist working with Tsarà
  • Anaesthetist at the Hébron hospital (Palestine)
