Eugene is a ten-month-old boy from the Philippines. An only child, he lives with his parents in a bamboo house.

Weak and susceptible to illness, Eugene has been diagnosed with severe acute malnutrition. His mother is concerned for his health, but she looks forward to his recovery and hopes that her son will someday become a teacher.

Our medical partner, International Care Ministries, is requesting $268 to cover the cost of an in-home feeding program to treat Eugene’s malnutrition. This will pay for nutrient-enriched food packs, weekly visits from medical staff, and health education for family members. Eugene is scheduled to begin treatment on February 23.

Mercy

Mercy is a hard working 46-year-old mom who lives with her two grown children. Because she is long separated from her husband, Mercy has taken care of their children by herself, doing whatever work she can find to support her family. Currently, her daughter is unemployed, while her son works doing jobs for a small hotel in their village. In May, Mercy was injured by a neighbor after a disagreement. She sustained an open fracture of her tibia/fibula, resulting in pain and difficulty walking. Mercy requires surgery to heal the fracture, to prevent an infection of the bone in her leg, and to avert other complications which might cause her to lose the use of her leg. Fortunately Mercy went to Nazareth Hospital, where a surgeon reviewed her case, and advised her to have surgery. However, Mercy and her children cannot raise the required fee for her medical care. Surgeons at our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, can help. On May 26th, Mercy will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation, at Nazareth Hospital. After treatment, Mercy will be able to walk and to work again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare is requesting $1,049 to fund this procedure. Mercy said: “I use my legs and my strength to work and make ends meet. My leg is very important for me. I am pleading for assistance so that I may have surgery and be well again so that I can resume my work to support my family.”
