Felix is 70 years old and lives in Yapacani, Bolivia near the Chalice Sponsor Site. He is a humble farmer who works in the fields.
Chalice Critical Needs - Surgical and Medical Costs for Felix, BoliviaThe small amount of income he earns is used to support himself and his two granddaughters, for whom he is responsible.

Recently while returning home from working in the farm fields on his old motorcycle, he collided with a minivan that was speeding and driving in the middle of the highway. Gravely injured with a broken left leg and cuts to his face, he was left abandoned on the side of the highway as the driver of the minivan sped away. After losing a lot of blood, he was discovered by another party and rushed to the nearest clinic by ambulance where specialists performed surgery to repair a compound fracture of his left leg. A second surgery was necessary to place a platinum bar in his leg so that there can be proper healing and enable him to walk again and hopefully continue to work.

The cost of the ambulance, surgeries, and medications has come to $4,324.50 and neither Felix or his family are able to pay for these costs. With this uncertain future, Felix is in desperate need of help.

Our sponsor site director, Father Arturo, became aware of the situation and has come to Chalice to assist Felix and his family with this burden.
