No.167: Nickname: Angelica, 8, Congenital Meningocele Hydrocephalus.
Angelica was born with meningocele hydrocephalus. She had undergone surgical operations twice for shunting. Angelica is the fourth (4th) of their parents’ six children. The father earns Php 13,500 gross a month as a maintenance staff in Maynilad while the mother is a plain housewife who takes care of all their seven children. With the meager salary, the family could barely provide for the medical and nutritional needs of the sick child.
We sent her urgent needs for maintenance medicines, formula milk, and cash for her following check-up and medical management. With a total value of Php 10,000 assistance, the family also received grocery items.
