Project Type: Health
Project Code: ITK0221B
Background: Jospina, 9, lives with her parents and three siblings near the Tamil site in India. Her brother, Riyas, has a Chalice sponsor, but Jospina does not.
One day in the middle of January, Jospina went to her parents with severe abdominal pain. Her family rushed her to the hospital by ambulance, where her doctors conducted a scan and realized her appendix had burst. The physicians immediately performed an emergency appendectomy.
Jospina's father relies on daily wage work on nearby farms to support his growing family and her mother does not work outside the home. This sudden expense is far beyond the family's means.
Fr. Don Bosco and the Tamil site have requested $1,109.00 CAD to allow Jospina's parents to pay for her tests, hospitalization, and surgical costs.
Funding Request: $1,109.00 CAD
Please note that any donations that exceed the request will be used to fund other critical need emergencies that may arise.
