Lai, Rin and His Kawasaki disease

Hi I'm Archie Caringal an Occupational Therapist / Photographer based in Qatar. I've met with Loreli or Lai as we fondly call her around 2011. She was this sweet, naive young woman who was our model on a photography workshop which I attended. We grew close to each other to the point I call her "anak" (daughter) and she calls me "itay" (father).


She was blessed with a cute, witty and adorable young boy named Rin. Unfortunately Lai needs to raise Rin alone and up until now she is struggling to make ends meet. As if it is not enough, the heavens is still testing her faith as now Rin is facing a detrimental disease called "KAWASAKI DISEASE".

Now Rin is facing Fever that has been there for days now, eye redness, swelling of the face and a whole lot more. The doctor has advised Lai to set aside around $2600 for immunoglobulin shots alone. 


I have set this GoFundMe campaign to help my "anak" and my "apo" through this grunting ordeal. We are knocking to your kind hearts to join us in helping Rin to get his smile back again and to prove that humanity still exist in this day and age. 

May God bless you all.
