Mr. Sebastian, father of Dias, a sponsored boy with special needs from our Kerala, India sponsor site was suffering from severe stomach pain.
He was admitted to Sacred Heart Medical Center and diagnosed with an acute kidney infection which required surgery the following day.
Mr. Sebastian, aged 72 and his wife, aged 69, take care of two sons with special needs even as they face their own health problems as they age. He works as a farmer and is the only income earner in the household because his wife needs to stay home to care for the boys. Now he is unable to work and the family, who borrowed money for this emergency surgery, can't afford to pay their debt. He tried to return to work to pay off some of what he owed but wasn't healed and ended up in a lot of pain again. One of their married daughters ie helping the family by buying them food until their father can return to work.
The family can't meet their daily needs and have no way to repay their loan. The sponsor site has asked Chalice to help this family in this time of great need for assistance to pay the $964.38 owed for Mr. Sebastian's surgery.
The payment of this debt will do much to ease Mr. Sebastian's mind so he can take enough time off work to recover completely from his surgery.
