Children in the Philippines who live in extreme poverty lack access to quality healthcare. They are often denied assistance and are unable to afford necessities to improve their quality of life.
Jammier is an 11-year-old boy from the Philippines. He has Focal Epilepsy, Structural, Cerebral Palsy Quadriparesis, Secondary to Neonatal Bacterial Meningitis.
His mother is a housewife. His father is a delivery boy. He earns roughly $88 USD a month, but when Manila shut down, he could no longer work. His mother started to sell frozen food from home to help with her family's needs. His mother has to turn to groups and locals to help pay for her son's needs.
His mother writes:"Jammier is my son, his disease started when he's only 4 months. He had Bacterial meningitis, after we admitted him for 2 months in hospital the doctor said he'll never back to normal again because his brain has been damage. Up until the medical record the doctors diagnosis are Cerebral Palsy and Focal Epilepsy. My son is drinking 3 medicines for his anti-seizure. But for now, his necessity are Oxygen Refill because he's been using Mechanical Ventilator for 2 years now.
As we try to see if we can order specifics medical items, she has diapers, gloves, and incontinence pads to help them get through this period.
Can you help us provide comfort to Jammier?
