Compassion for Chela

Update: I feel is time to pause and reflect on the past 6 months since my arrival to Venezuela to rescue my dearest -almost 88 years old- mama. You all have made donations that she and I call BLESSING DONATIONS and without them, again, my mom would not be alive and well. She is now using a 4 point cane to walk, learning to walk again, literally.

As I have mentioned before, thanks are not enough to express our deepest gratitude.

I come to you again to help my mother and I during the last phase of this journey, I want to believe is the last phase. You would help us return home to our family in Vancouver, Canada.

Your donations are needed to:
- Pay for the remaining evening helpers who support my mom during the night as she wakes up 3 to 5 times to use the washroom (bladder condition).
- Pay for the passport application and the fees to recover the renewal sticker of my mom´s passport (The SAIME office is not open and I need to opt for a mediator who knows someone at the SAIME office).
- Pay for two airline tickets and luggage fees, travel insurance, which is required for traveling.

My kids ask me often: "When are you coming back?". Only God knows.
However I do believe that God is with us and your donations are greatly appreciated, without them I don´t know what else to do. Thank you in advance from the bottom of our hearts. Amen.


I am in need of my community's support. My mom is 88 years old living by herself in Caracas, Venezuela. She just suffered an accident in her apartment that produced her pelvis and ankle fractures. She is in a public hospital at the moment and requires to be in bed for the next 6 to 8 weeks as she can't have surgery due to her age.

I need your help to provide daily and nightly care during this time. I need your help to be able to visit her as the airfare ticket is out of my current budget. I need your help to bring her as much comfort as possible in her last years of life by coming to live with me here in Canada. Her moving here will require many expenses that  I currently do not have.

I have been working two jobs to be able to provide for her but the new expenses go beyond this. Even my oldest son who is currently working full time has been supporting her too.

I need your support. May God bless you!
