KASAGIP Charitable Trust is appealing for your generosity to support our fellow kababayan Edynell Tecson and his wife Charina. Edynell has been working in a farm as a dairy farm assistant since 2009 and is now assistant herd manager to a share milker. Wife Charina arrived in July 2012 this year. Due to some unforeseen events, Charina became ill and unexpectedly had to undergo surgery. She developed cancer and had to undergo chemotherapy and some other related treatments. As she has only arrived recently she is not yet able to enjoy the benefits of subsidized medical care. The couple has no choice but to shoulder the costs of what was classified as “non-resident” treatment which is more than $30,000 for all the check-up, surgery costs, and radiation therapy she has had. Charina is not able to work at the moment due to her illness. This is where Edynell is really concerned about -- that his wife who should have been here to help find work now needs medical care and attention.
Edynell is pleading for any financial support that we can offer him. Whilst he has made arrangements with the DHB to slowly pay off his bills, this may not be enough as they also have to survive on a daily basis. The Filipino Community in Oamaru (Southland) have already organised a Christmas Party and have raised some money for Edynell. KASAGIP also did its preliminary fund-raising through the recently Garage Sale and Raffle from its Christmas Party.
But the assistance does not end here. If you would like to help out Edynell and his wife, as this will be an on-going appeal, there are two ways of supporting Edynell:
1. You can choose to directly deposit your donations to his bank account
