The Commission on Filipinos Overseas would like to seek the assistance of the Feed the Hungry, Inc. (FtH) to help Baby Jhonny B. Jermia to sustain his daily basic and medical needs. He was diagnosed with Occipitocervical meningoencephalocele (a rare congenital anomaly that is characterized by herniation of brain tissue through a defect in skull) with hydrocephalus. Baby Jhonny will turn 4 months old on 10 April 2019.
Jhonny’s father is a laborer and the sole breadwinner of the family with meager income, while his mother is a houseparent. They live in Brgy. San Isidro, Toboso, Negros, Occidental.
Baby Jhonny needs immediate operation to hopefully save and extend his life, but the lack of finances hinders Jhonny’s parents to send him for further treatment, and proper management of his medical condition.
At present, the daily needs of Baby Jhonny are milk, diapers, wipes, cotton, antiseptic wound spray (Hyclens) for his head wound, gauze/bandage, among others.
For reference, we have attached request letter of the mother, medical abstract/diagnosis and photographs of Baby Jhonny, as referred to CFO by Mr. Ryan Tormentar of Toboso Farmers and Workers Association.
If you wish to provide assistance to help Baby Jhonny, you may send your assistance to the following bank account of CFO:
