Hi Friends, Family and kind-hearted souls checking out this campaign.
We have decided to start this campaign for the family of our best friend's father, Wilfredo Alvarez.
Fred or Willie, as he was fondly called, was a very generous man. He had supported his parents and 17 siblings at a very young age until late in his life. He preached about the value of education, and made sure his children had the best.
Sadly, he contracted Covid-19 and a very severe case of Pneumonia. This, despite taking all the precautions and being vaccinated. He was admitted on August 23, 2021 at The Medical City in Metro Manila, . He went through covid treatment which included monoclonal antibodies, hemoperfusion, ventilator support, and hemodialysis for 3 weeks in the ICU . He put up a good fight, but unfortunately, succumbed to the ravages of the virus last Sept 15, 2021 with a horrendous bill amounting to over PHP 3.0 Million ($60,000) left for the family to settle.
In light of the current restrictions, there was no wake for us to be able to give tribute to Tito Willie and offer words of encouragement to the family.
The custom of giving financial donations is one way we can help ease the emotional and, more importantly, the financial stress and burden that the grieving family is experiencing.
Thru this fund drive, we are knocking on your kind and generous hearts. Any amount will truly help the family during this difficult time. It’s not how much we give, but how much we put into giving.
Thank you so much for your time and for showing your support to their family. Stay safe and God bless your kind heart.
-Ernest, Jeff, and Ardo
