Lucy is the guardian of her grandchildren, Sheyla, Flavia, and Eric, who each have a kind Chalice sponsor.
Hipólito and one of his sons traveled to find work and returned to their family carrying COVID-19, infecting the entire household of 11 people. The younger family members recovered, but Lucy has deteriorated rapidly. Her blood oxygen levels are between 6% and 10% lower than they must be.
Her family tried to take her to the hospital, waiting for hours. The doctors estimated that 50% of her lungs were compromised. But the hospitals are overwhelmed and could not admit her or provide her with oxygen or medication. The family brought her home to care for her, but without oxygen and treatment, she is at risk of dying.
Her Chalice family circle and the Chiclayo site staff sprang into action to privately source oxygen, medication, and a supply of nutritious food. But these items are expensive and beyond the family's means, especially because health restrictions halted her small animal husbandry business.
The Chiclayo site has requested $1,169.46 CAD to ensure Lucy's family can purchase a seven-day supply of oxygen, medicines, medical scans, nutritious food, and transportation. The Chiclayo site will be accompanying her with support and prayers.
