Alexander is a faithful disciple of the Kingston Church of Christ since March 1984. He has faithfully served as family group leader for many years along with his wife before she passed away some years ago. He currently serves as a deacon and also a song leader in one of the satellite churches in Jamaica. Since his wife’s death, Alexander has been taking care of his mother in-law (now 84) who continues to live with him. Alexander later took in his brother in-law who had financial difficulties. Since then his brother in -law (Patrick) has suffered two strokes which have left him paralyzed on the right side of his body and unable to walk properly. Every three months, Patrick has to be taken via taxi for clinic visits 45 minutes away for medical evaluation and therapy. His mother-in-law also has to go to the clinic due to her health challenges.
Alexander is now retired and is currently job hunting. His pension, along with assistance he gets from the church, and the subsidy that his in-laws get from the government heath programme cannot sustain the household adequately. His mother-in-law and brother-in-law have no other source of income.
This request is to assist with medical-related expenses and nutrition.
