My name is Vincent, and my wife Locadia and I met at church. Our faith has been a constant source of strength, especially during difficult times. I was baptized in 2004 in Harare, and my wife was baptized four years later in Bulawayo. Together, we've built a beautiful family with our two precious daughters. Our eldest has begun her Early Childhood Development (ECD) learning, a source of our immense pride.

Locadia is a plain housewife. while I navigate the challenges of living with epilepsy. Diagnosed in 2013, the condition has significantly impacted my ability to find a well-paying job to support our family. Despite our hard work, covering even necessities like food has become a constant struggle. The true hardship lies in managing my medical needs. My epilepsy can worsen by the day, with the frequency of seizures directly affecting my medication costs. Each month, depending on the number of seizures, I require $100 worth of medication, a significant financial burden.

It is with a heavy heart but unwavering faith that I reach out to the ETF. Your support would mean the world to us. We desperately need assistance to acquire my medication and undergo proper scans and x-rays to determine if there are any fractures or brain damage caused by the seizures. Through your generosity, we hope to manage my health and create a brighter future for our family. We are incredibly grateful for any support you can offer. May God bless you abundantly.

My name is Anasse, and I have been a devoted follower of Jesus for the past eight years. Up until 2022, I used to work for a small company and earned a minimum wage. Unfortunately, due to my Acute Osteoarthritis, I had to stop working as it made it impossible for me to walk and move around normally. This condition has caused me excruciating pain in my knee joints, and I now rely on a crutch to support my body when standing and moving. I have already spent all of my savings on medical bills and am struggling to cover my ongoing expenses. Therefore, I am reaching out to ETF for financial assistance to cover my medical expenses, including doctor appointments and maintenance. Any help that can be provided would be greatly appreciated in easing my financial burden.

My name is Eva Yabet. I'm 50 years old, and I'm a Plastic Artist. I studied Visual Arts. I've been happily married for the past 17 years and got married in the church. During the pandemic, I gained a lot of weight, reaching 108 kilos, which caused me to develop diabetes, fatty liver, and poor circulation. This, along with post-traumatic stress, led to insomnia, anxiety, and chronic inflammatory skin condition. Dealing with these treatments has been very difficult for me both financially and emotionally. Currently, I am also experiencing hair loss, hearing loss, and rhino-laryngitis as a result of COVID-19.

I've received treatment for some of these ailments in different hospitals, and due to my illness, I was included in the social program of free specialized services in Mycology, Dermatology, Nutrition, Obesity, Psychiatry, and Gender Clinic. Thanks to God, I've recovered from some of the diseases. However, I'm still under treatment for some of them, which requires me to regularly buy other medicines, including a special device called an Auto-CPAP (costing $20,000), which helps me achieve optimal pulmonary ventilation and combat sleep apnea, preventing cardiac arrest during sleep. I also require daily insulin injections to manage my appetite and maintain my insulin levels, which is not always available in the hospital. I'm humbly reaching out to you to request financial assistance to acquire these medicine and and hopefully buy the Auto CPAP machine. I've not been able to carry on with all the medications and treatments due to financial constraints. I appreciate your willingness to help, and may God bless you.

My name is Norah Kamwambo. I have been a disciple for 31 years and was baptized in South Africa. In 1995, I relocated back home to Zimbabwe. I am a single mother of two boys and two girls, and I have six grandchildren. After retiring from working at a pharmacy, I now rely solely on my pension. But since my 47-year-old daughter was diagnosed with mental health problems, everything has changed. She needs to take medication every day to control her mood swings. Due to the high price of her medication, my monthly pension is not enough to cover the cost. Additionally, my grandsons live with me.

I am reaching out to my brothers and sisters for help during this difficult time. I need support to be able to provide medicines for my daughter and food for my grandchildren. Any amount of help is highly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

My name is Herman, and I have been a disciple of Jesus for 19 years. I am part of the Church on the Ivory Coast. Unfortunately, I had a stroke attack last year, and now I am entirely dependent on my mother for my daily needs. She has been doing an excellent job of taking care of me, but we are struggling financially. My mother, who used to sell in the market to support herself, now has to help me, which has made things very tough for her. Due to my stroke, I am not fully functional, and it is a struggle for me to make even the slightest movements. Therefore, I am reaching out to ETF for assistance. I need help to afford my medication and, more importantly, my rehabilitation. It is my goal to recover soon. This will ease my mother's burden. Any amount you can spare will go a long way in helping us get through this difficult time. My sincere thanks go out to you.

Rorie, 39 years old, a loving wife, and a mother of two Kissley & Karl, has been a faithful disciple of ICOC Cagayan De Oro in the Philippines. Back in 2023, Rorie was diagnosed with Squamous Cell Carcinoma (Cervical cancer). Due to her health condition, she was not able to work, and her sister took care of her two kids. She depended on her father & mother-in-law for support regarding her medicines, chemotherapy, and other medical expenses. Although her husband lost his full-time job, he worked hard to support his children, especially Rorie, by trying all the available jobs.

Last Monday, March 24, 2023, Rorie was admitted due to intolerable pain, low hemoglobin, and creatinine issues; until today, she is still in the hospital. The recommendation was to continue the prescribed medication, check-ups, and laboratory tests. Still, due to a lack of finances, she partially took the meds and treatments except for the food supplements donated and given by some relatives and friends. Any support you can provide to ease Rorie's burden during these challenging times will be greatly appreciated. May the Lord bless you in so many ways.
