Help us cover medical expenses for baby in Philippines

Update posted by Belinda Jenkins On Apr 01, 2016

We've had some inquiries as to whether we're still taking donations. We thought the most logical way of doing this, was to re-open the site for any 'last minute racers' out there! The site will be open for the weekend - thanks for your continued support.

My personal thanks to you.

I’ll be honest, I’ve had a few sleepless nights. When I first heard of the story of baby Lanz-Dhrei, I felt shocked and sad Mary-Jane was sleeping on the floor of the hospital after a cesarean. It speaks volumes of a mother’s resilience in adversity.

Then I learned about the medical expenses and the burden of their loan repayments. I wanted to help and raised this idea with my husband; after all, we’ve worked for years in IT, and surely, we can leverage this concept of crowdfunding? Of course, after researching and launching this campaign, the fear set in. Would anyone donate?

There are many stories and causes, but you cared, and you generously donated. We have raised over USD$2000 which is an amazing achievement! This changes everything for Mary-Jane and Vilmar. It will clear the interest-laden borrowings, and allow this family to breathe again.

Thank you for giving this family a break. It’s an inspiring and humbling act of kindness.

Special mention to my husband, Jay, and sister, Tamara, for their assistance with content and video, and for their support and encouragement. Also, to Dinalyn, who inspires me everyday with her work ethic and sacrifice for her family back in the Philippines.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

Belinda

Sincere thanks to those of you who have made offline contributions. It really is a fantastic effort from the Nursing Volunteers and others to make this happen!

This weekend, Dinalyn took the news to her family about our crowd-funding campaign. Better than us describing how they feel, Mary-Jane has made a short video that she wants to share with everyone (includes English subtitles).

If you haven't had a chance to donate, we have just four days to go!

I thank everyone for your kind hearted donations. We are so grateful.

I am so excited and can't wait to tell my sister all the help that we are receiving from all of you.

This donation will help them a lot and they will be so thankful for your help. Thanks to all of you.

This is a picture of my sister, Mary-Jane and Lanz-Dhrei.

We realise that many people want to contribute, but can't online. The good news is that you can still contribute and we can add the amount raised offline to our online tally. Thanks to many of you for your pledges.

Thanks to those people who have jumped on board early to donate. We've made a great start, but please spread the word. We have not told Mary-Jane that we are fund-raising yet, so stay tuned as we hope to let her know soon!
