Our Precious Uno Needs Help

$10,214 of $60,000 goal
Given by 249 generous donors in 11 days

Help Uno's parents to pay for the medical expenses and medical-related travel costs since Uno is not eligible for free healthcare in NZ.

Timaru, Canterbury

Uno's family needs our help to pay for his medical expenses and for medical-related travel costs. He is now admitted at Timaru Hospital and will be transferred soon at Christchurch Hospital with the need of blood transfusion for having very low haemoglobin level due to colonic bleeding.

Because of their family's visa application status, Uno is currently not eligible for free healthcare here in New Zealand.

Uno, now 4 years old, was born here in New Zealand with Global Developmental Delay due to chromosomal abnormalities. Alongside such condition, Uno has had several other health issues.

In May 2023, he started to have colonic bleeding. It happened again in March 2024 and it has since become an ongoing issue with the current bleeding having caused the very low level of haemoglobin.

On 24th June, he also tested positive of RSV and he ended up being admitted in the Children's High Care Unit at Christchurch Hospital for five (5) days. This admission at Timaru Hospital and eventually at Christchurch Hospital has ended up with a huge amount of cost that Uno's family needs to pay.

We are now knocking on your kind hearts to please help Uno's family. Any amount of financial assistance will be very much appreciated by Uno and his parents -- Janette and Zaldy Eligio.

Uno's 5th Day in Christchurch Hospital   13 July 2024

Today marks Uno's 5th Day in Christchurch Hospital!😔

Once again, thank you very much for all your prayers and your generosity.

Uno's family needs more help since Uno is still not eligible for free healthcare here in New Zealand.

Each day, each test and each procedure being done in the hospital means growing medical bill.

Yesterday , the doctor changed Uno's feeding tube that goes straight to his small intestine since Uno's swallowing muscles are not strong enough, which cause a huge choking risk for Uno since he was still a baby. The doctor connected the new feeding tube to Uno's stomach instead to see if it's the cause of Uno's colonic bleeding.

At this moment, Uno will most likely undergo endoscopy and will have to stay for more days in the hospital. Undergoing endoscopy means that Uno will receive anaesthesia so please pray for Uno's wee body is ready for the anaesthesia and for the procedure.

The family will appreciate it if you can please continue to share their give-a-little page, most especially with the most recent medical plan by Uno's doctor.

Once again, thank you very much!
