Fundahigado America Auction 2021

Welcome to the FHA AUCTION 2021.

About FHA:
Fundahígado América (FHA) is a non-profit charitable organization, registered in the United States Founded as an independent organization exempt from taxes type 501 (c) 3. FHA focuses on providing training and evaluation, in pediatric live donor liver transplant from the hand of top-level health professionals, to local medical personnel in their respective countries so that they can care for patients with pediatric liver disease. 

Congenital anomalies are major causes of infant and adolescent death, chronic disease, and disability. They also place a disproportionate burden on lower-income families due to high out-of-pocket expenses, as well as other significant social costs. Worldwide, they have caused approximately 2.68 million deaths in 2015 (WHO). In the Americas region, they were the leading cause of death, with 47,096 deaths reported in children aged 0 to 4 years in 2016 (WHO). Among congenital diseases, those that affect the liver have become a new childhood health epidemic.

Biliary atresia (BA) is the most common cause of end-stage pediatric liver disease and the main indication for pediatric.
When a child does not receive proper treatment, not only is the family incurring a huge financial cost, but also the economy of low-income communities in Latin America suffers. As many health systems are unable to provide LT (Liver Transplant), low-income families are forced to pay out of pocket for palliative treatments, which causes the family major and recurrent expenses, and in very few cases to sell everything to migrate to the US in search of medical treatment. Moreover, poor families often experience loss of income, as parents need to become full-time caretakers during the disease. Mothers are more likely to exit the workforce to take care of the affected child, which undermines gender equality. In this sense, increasing access to high quality, affordable pediatric LT (Liver Transplant) has the power to reduce poverty-related vulnerabilities in the LAC region.

We hope you participate in our silent auction, which contains select items including limited edition items, memorabilia, and art work. The auction winners will be announced during the event.

Self taught, emerging artist, Shonna Drew, developed her fascination with art as a child growing up in New York. She graduated with a BFA in acting from Marymount Manhattan College and shortly after took a turn into the fashion world. Though she can’t remember a time in her life where she wasn’t painting, it wasn’t until 2014 that she began to focus on her art. Shonna is currently living and creating art from her Miami studio. The artist regards her paintings as visual personality extensions… sparkly metallics , and sometimes humorous subjects reflecting the inner girl — contrasted fearlessly with bold lips, expressing the unfettered, independent woman who discovered her artistic voice. Shonna, like her art, embraces beautiful contradictions.
