Nanay Lourdes is my mother-in-law and currently residing in Pampanga, Philippines. She has Chronic Kidney Disease Stage 5 secondary to Diabetic Nephropathy per Medical Abstract dated February 8, 2019.
She is already widowed and no source of income though she is a senior citizen receiving a monthly compensation of 500 pesos, but this amount is not given by the government monthly and not enough even to pay for one session of her dialysis. She is to come to the hospital thrice a week. Need to commute with her daughter and niece for they do not have a vehicle to use for. Sometimes, they can get a free ride from the barangay's ambulance going to the hospital. We do not have our own vehicle to use for. She is having difficulty in travelling to the hospital wherein it is far from where she lived. She is blind in one eye due to diabetes and the other eyes vision is blurry. She is 67 turning 68 by April 30.
The financial support coming from her children is not enough to cover her expenses and need to lend money from other people but up until when? Her children also have children to support to. I know that she is a priority because she is their mother but though they wanted to help big time (unless have won the lottery) but because of the meager earnings even combined cannot do the 52, 800 pesos monthly payment for the hemodialysis.
Her daughter went to government agencies to seek help but due to the upcoming election, assistance is hold yet to wait for another month or two to re-process it.And we are all doing our best to gather funds for the dialysis that we do not know up until when she needs it.
All of us supports our mom. I would like everyone who has a good heart and understand her situation to help us in prayer and in finances.
Your help, if able to complete the funds needed, it wil cover a year of her hemodialysis.
I am appealing to all of you to please help Nanay Lourdes on her treatmet. God will return the blessings you share hundred folds.
