Siamese twins Gita and Zita Rezakhanova were born in 1991 in the village of Dzhany-Jer in northern Kyrgyzstan. In March 2003, the surgery to separate the twins was a success. But unfortunately in 2015, Zita, whose body was weaker than her sister's, died at the young age of 24. Even though all the hardships, Gita and her family have stayed strong and their faith in God has continued to strengthen. Gita finished a four-year college and began working as a teacher. As soon as she started teaching, she was diagnosed with a 2nd stage of colon cancer. Every 2-3 months she needs to fly to Moscow from KG to change the Despite her strong will, Gita’s condition worsened. Doctors in Kyrgyzstan stated that they do not have the capability to treat her. Her condition is in a critical state right now and she needs to be sent to Moscow immediately to get treated. Gita has many aspirations - she plans to teach English and has already compiled a curriculum for elementary school.
In memory of her sister Zita, her family opened a center for children with disabilities in their village. A total of about 50 children attend the center, where they are taught computer literacy, drawing, singing, playing chess, and conduct classes with a psychologist. All services are provided to children for free. Gita hopes to get better and dreams of working with these children. She hopes to provide these children with a safe and nurturing environment like the one her family provided her and Zita. Please support Gita so she could live to achieve her dreams.
