I’m going to share an urgent matter.
There is a 5-year-old boy at the children’s home named Frederick that I mentioned a few days ago that was having urinary infection with bleeding and the doctor found an enlarged kidney in testing.
A couple days ago when I inquired about him they told me that he was turning yellow. My medical knowledge is limited to basic first aid and research about my problems, but the Mayo Clinic has a great online resource, so I started asking the questions listed, and based on what information I got, I told them to get him to the doctor immediately. The doctor briefly examined him and told them that my belief was accurate and that they had to get him to the hospital in Dipolog which is a couple of hours away.
They are trying to treat him but they have found that he has internal bleeding and needs a blood transfusion. They have located 2 “bags” of the blood of the right type. The cost is about $75 each (figuring the current exchange rate).
We don’t have the funds to help him because our donations are down over 75% since the COVID 19 virus problem started while at the same time, we are helping additional people, especially the elderly and ones who don’t have any food coming into them.
That is the problem, in addition to the needed prayers, if you would like to donate anything, large or small, you can go to the children’s home website and donate. Since we are small, PayPaI handles the transaction for security for you. The address is below. We would like to raise $500 for him because of the additional medication and blood expected in the future.
He is the 3rd boy in the picture.

Thank you for your prayers and donations. Please feel free to share.
He was found to still be bleeding internally. He has been given the first bag of blood. There were some tense times when the nurse saw that while he had A+ blood, the blood that he had been given was O. However, the charts show that there is no problem with using that type of blood with his blood type.
He is still in very critical condition and they do not know for sure that he will make it through this illness, so we ask again for your prayers.
