Loving Family

A poor loving family in Catarman, the Philippines   is struggling with a mother who has acute liver cancer. The lady’s name is Dominga Mapa, who is 73 years old and very weak. ( Her daughter who is caring for her is Rowena Mapa who along with her other siblings are seeking to support their mother).  Dominga by now, can eat very little and has to be on oxygen often to breathe. She cannot speak very clearly and her voice is weak and almost unable to be heard.

This family living in Catarman, the Philippines is very poor and their only means of financing her medical treatment is to borrow money from money lenders who charge at a fearsome rate of return! Borrowing is the only option that this family have. (Fortunately, by the grace of God the landlords who rent out the Mapa’s home are not demanding the rent – until they are able to pay.   Thank God!    But as you can imagine, this is a very difficult time for the family both emotionally and financially.   Additionally, the ongoing cost of the medical treatment for the poor lady is it least
10, 000 Philippine pesos (£150 . 00) per month.

I am asking for Christian believers to help this lady. Dominga also has a broken hearted, sick husband who has heads two strokes already and is crying with the grief of the poverty and the sickness of his wife. Please extend mercy to this dear lady and her family.
I am asking a total of £800.00
( approx $1020). This to cover the cost of money already borrowed to be returned with interest to the money lenders and for the next 3 months of Dominga’s treatment. By God’s grace her life may be extended.
