On 20 April this year Blessy Nilles's parents and children (pictured with her above) attended an election rally in their home town, Iba, in the province of Zambales in the Philipines while she was working in Singapore. There was an explosion which tragically killed both her parents and seriously injured her children. Her 9 yr old son, Brent Jhairus, was sent to St Lukes hospital in Manilla where he sadly had to have his right leg amputated as well as the toes on his left foot which had been crushed in the blast. Her 7 yr old daughter, Jheihan Syke, has not spoken since the incident and is now receiving psycho therapy weekly. She is suffering from severe post traumatic stress.
We are raising funds to help her cover medical costs for her son's rehabilitation and her daughter's therapy. We would also like to give her son the opportunity to walk again with the aid of a prosthetic limb. As he is still growing his journey has only just begun. With your help the family will be able to concentrate on the children's mental health with less of a financial burden to bare.
