Dearest Family and Friends,
In this season of giving, I am knocking in to your hearts to help my good friend of more than 10-years, Rommel Simon be able to see again so that he is able to go back to work & provide for his wife and daughter.
Rommel is currently in the Philippines and has been diagnosed with Diabetes and Acute Kidney Failure. With God's grace, he is able to get by without dialysis through strict diet and medications, however, he lost his eyesight due to the complications from his diabetes, and having cataract worsened his situation. His wife, Anne, is taking care of him full-time since he is unable to see in the last 2 years. Their landlord is very kind to let them still stay at their rental home for more than 6 months without paying as they are aware of his dire situation.
Last November, I was able to help Rommel fund for his right eye's cataract surgery and thank God he is now able to somehow gain a little bit of his eyesight back, although he is still unable to fully see & read because some of his vessels in the eyes ruptured due to complications from Diabetes.
This time, his only wish is to have his left eye operated as well so that it can further improve his eyesight and be fully independent. That way, he is able to work again and his wife can start seeking jobs in order to help sustain their needs.
I thought that if I can get a little bit of help from everyone, it would be possible to help change Rommel's life and give him a second chance to live as normal as possible.
100% of the funding and donations will go straight to Rommel and his family to help fund for his surgery, medicines and their everyday needs. I will be providing updates from time to time and schedule his surgery as soon as we reach 80% of our goal.
Thank you all for your support and may God bless each and everyone of us. Stay safe!
