I feel so bad for 41-year-old Cesar Arqueza, after only 6 weeks in New Zealand, on a one-year work visa, here to support his family back in the Philippines and pay his children's education costs for university, Cesar ended up in Auckland Hospital for a week.

7 days Surgical ward care, 3 x operations, 1 x MRI scan, Cesar had his Gall Bladder removed and now must pay $23,000.

Cesar arrived in Auckland from the Philippines in October with a healthy medical clearance but sadly NO travel/health insurance for the unexpected. And the unexpected happened, Gall Stones!

Cesar is such a gentle soul, gravely concerned for his family’s future and children's education.

His decision to borrow $6000 to come to New Zealand, to make a difference for his family, has not only failed, but left him in more debt than he could ever imagine. Cesar now has 10 months to pay his hospital bill. If you give a little, you are an angel, your kindness and compassion, overwhelmingly appreciated. Bless You.

Use of Funds:

The Goal is to pay as much of Cesar's hospital fees as possible so Cesar can continue to use his wages to support his family and pay his loan.

Hi I am Barbara the payroll manager for a small business who employs Cesar Arqueza. Cesar was already over commented before going into hospital. With $2300 a month already from wages going home for his loan payments, school fees and family living expenses, I was already concerned how Cesar was going to cope, now this?

All funds raised benefit:

Funds will be paid to a verified bank account of Cesar Arqueza.
