Cynthia is the mother of a sponsored child at our Bulacan Sponsor Site in Philippines.
On July 9 she went to the doctor because she was short of breath and spitting up blood.
Due to her poor health condition, she was advised to go to the hospital and was diagnosed with pneumonia and congenital heart disease. Cynthia was admitted to hospital for six days, given an echocardiogram and medication.
She is now back in hospital and the outstanding hospital bills and cost of medication far exceeds the family's ability to pay. Cynthia's husband is the only one working in their family, selling repacked condiments four times a week. They have two school-aged children and with only one small income, the family already has trouble making ends meet.
The sponsor site has asked Chalice for $2,000 to help this family pay their mother's hospital bill and buy the medications required to manage her medical condition.
