I am helping the wife of an Egyptian friend to raise medical expenses. She is in her 20s.
She started to have chest pain a long time ago. In order not to let her family worry, she has been enduring the pain without telling anyone. Until recently, she went to the hospital for examination. It was found that there was cardiovascular obstruction and the doctor suggested surgery as soon as possible.
However, in Egypt, going to the hospital is a luxury for the ordinary people. The average person can't afford it. My friend's monthly salary is $122 USD, and the surgery costs $7,300 USD.
My friend has a son of 6 and 3 years old. He had told me that he might have to keep his son from starting school because he needed medical expenses. Upon my questioning, the entrance fee for school is only $177 USD. I told him not to delay his son’s education. The entrance fee would not help.
I know very well that if I can raise enough money for her surgery, the result is completely in the hands of God. Even if she can afford to have enough medical expenses, it is under H is authority.
1 John 3:17-18 says: " But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth."
Please prayerfully consider to help my friend.
