Relieve Galan’s family from their poverty-stricken conditions and help her get necessary treatment for her disease.
Diagnosed with CHD While Giving Birth
Galan became a mother two years ago, when she was 43. When she was giving birth, she was diagnosed with congenital heart disease. However, surgery couldn’t be done because of her PAH, a disease of the vessels that carry blood from the heart to the lungs.
Family Members Unable to Work
Galan’s father is too old to do field work. Her older brother is not able to work due to mental retardation and rheumatic arthritis. The family’s income from the fields is only about $160 USD a year. Galan raised a few pigs which earned about $320 USD a year.
Galan’s condition became serious in the winter, and she needs to be treated in the hospital. The family lives in three rooms made of mud that have become old and shabby.
Life has become so hard for the family. Will you help support their basic living costs?
