Esther passed away on Sunday 13th March. We would like to thank her sponsor for making sure her final months were far more pleasant and allowed her to be far more cared for than she could have been without the support provided. We are so grateful that thanks to her sponsor she was able to eat everyday, received medicine and medical care as needed and was able to pass away in as much comfort as possible. May she rest in peace

We just got a donation to get Esther quality medical attention. Thank you so much for your support.
Tomorrow morning we will be taking Esther to a private clinic for a thorough exam with one of our most trusted doctors. We are keeping our fingers crossed for better treatment for Esther's severe pain problems. We'll keep you posted on the results. Again, thank you!
About one year ago, Esther fell, dislocated her hip, and fractured her leg and pelvis in three places. Since then she has been bound to her wheelchair and using diapers.
When we met her, Esther was crying in pain. Her family says that about 15 years ago Ester had a botched dental operation (a tooth removal) that damaged her nerves and left her with chronic pain. The poor woman is almost always in pain. When we arrived at her house the first time, the pain was so intense that she begged us for help. Ester takes pain medicine, but it is insufficient. The family cannot afford to get specialized medical attention for Esther to see if something better can be done about her pain. Please help us get her a proper check up in a private clinic to see if we can do something to alleviate her suffering. It would cost just $75 and could change her world tremendously.
