This fund is for a family close to ours in Serbia they have been going through series of domestic abuse from the husband and the mother has kidney damage and needs a medical visa but refuses to leave her children behind.
Lela is a 41 year old devoted mother of two teenagers who lives in Serbia. She is one of the sweetest souls I have ever encountered. Although we have never met, my husband and I feel as though her and her children are family. As with family, when one hurts, we all do. This is the case with Lela. She has Chronic Kidney Disease with constant pain. The doctors in Serbia have been treating her with a medication approved in the United States by the FDA only for treatment of HORSES. Yes, you read correctly; horses. Her pain has not lessened and if she stays on the current course of deterioration, she will need a Kidney Transplant.
If she were in the United States, she could receive the correct medication and might possibly be able to avoid transplant. Lord only knows the pain this woman is dealing with on a daily basis; not to mention her children watching her go through this. She is a victim of an alcoholic, abusive husband who will not support her or the children in any way. She is the sole provider for the household and they do not receive the nutrition needed to thrive. Most meals consist of a piece of bread and a lettuce salad. She is currently loosing weight and is in dire need of advanced medical care.
Once in the US, she will have a place to stay and recover, but we need your help in getting her and her children here. She is smiling in the pictures, but those who know the pain of domestic violence, know that smile is a mask for hidden deep pain.
Lela needs a new start for her and her children. Please donate as little or much as you can. Any donation is welcome and appreciated; but even if you cannot donate, please pray for this family. All proceeds will go toward their Visa's, travel expenses and medical care while in the US.
