Late last year tragedy struck the family of Godofredo, a staff member at our Yapacani site. Four of his siblings were attacked by an estranged relative.
Chalice Critical Needs - Medical expenses for Godfredo's familyHis 14-year-old sister Nelly (a Chalice sponsored child) did not survive. The wounded were rushed to the nearest emergency room of a local private clinic and had to undergo immediate surgery. They remained in intensive care for several days before being released. They are recovering.

The relative was apprehended and placed in police custody.

Godofredo's father passed away three years ago, leaving his mother with scarce financial resources. They are a humble family and are grateful that three of the four family members survived due to the prompt treatment they were able to get at the private clinic. Sadly, after this terrible tragedy, they are left with a hospital bill and medical expenses totalling $12,060 and have no means to pay the bill.

Our Chalice Sponsor Site Director, Father Arturo, has come to Chalice requesting funding assistance to cover this huge debt.
