Mrs. Rani, mother of a sponsored child through our Tamil sponsor site in India, is a widow and cancer patient.
She has been taking medication to treat her condition for the past year.
In May she was having severe stomach pain from a tumour in her uterus. She was taken to the government hospital for treatment, but was refused admission due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Because she needed urgent treatment, she was taken to a private hospital where she had surgery and was discharged a week later.
Due to her illness, Mrs. Rani isn't able to work. She has three sons - the two elder sons are helping with daily wage work, while her youngest son is in school. The family is able to pay for basic expenses, but has no savings and no extra money to cover this medical bill.
The sponsor site is asking Chalice for $1,361.30 to help this family pay off this debt so Mrs. Rani can rest easy as she continues her cancer treatment.
