Mrs. Selvamary is the mother of 17-year-old Serlin - a sponsored girl at the Chalice Tamil Sponsor Site in India. She began experiencing severe stomach pain in early May.
She consulted a doctor and her tests revealed cysts in her uterus and ovary. She required an immediate hysterectomy and was released from hospital a few days later.
Mrs. Selvamary is a flower vendor (she knits flowers and sells them) and her husband is a helper in a hospital. They live in a rented house with their two teenaged girls (in grades 10 and 12). They barely earn enough money to meet their basic needs. Due to their financial situation they have no means to pay for her hospital bill of $922.55.
The sponsor site director has come to Chalice requesting assistance in the amount of $922.55 to cover Mrs. Selvamary's treatment and relieve them of their outstanding debt.
Funding Request: $922.55
Critical Need: ITK0620
Please note that any donations that exceed the request will be used to fund other critical need emergencies that may arise.
