Subject: Help for a Child with Congenital Heart Ailment
Dear Sir:
"I am writing for a friend of mine whose son, named Royed Fajardo, a 5-month old baby, is diagnosed to have a congenital heart problem - hypoplastic left heart syndrome. According to diagnosing doctors, the disease is rare and is incurable in the Philippines. The best heart center here in the Philippines has already indicated that there is no successful operation yet for such case here in the Philippines."
"However, based on research made in the Internet, there are medical centers in the USA which have undertaken successful operation for such kind of heart operation. The father of the child, Mr. Orlando Fajardo, has already written to several foundations in the US but has received no response yet. Royed has been diagnosed to live only for a month but through prayers, he is still surviving. But, he is now having difficulty breathing and is needing immediate help."
"His father is a missionary pastor to southern part of the Philippines but is now in Manila to ask for help. He could not, however, go full time asking for help as he has to help his wife caring for the ailing boy."
"Having no financial means to go to USA for the operation, the family is asking your kind support so Royed could have the needed operation at the soonest time possible. We have learned that your organization has helped a lot of children all over the world and we pray that you can do the same for Royed."
"You may contact me through my e-mail or directly the boy's father or mother, Mr.and Mrs. Orlando Fajardo Muntinlupa City, Philippines, via the attached address."
"May God bless you and the people who have been supporting your noble mission.
In God's grace",   Elenita M. Pacba

  Dear Mr. Bo Eric Sandberg;
"Thank you for the response of January 11. I am the father of the sick child, Royed Clay R. Fajardo. He was born on July 30, 2001 and is now 5 months old. His name is derived from the three great men of God who influenced my life in the Lord. Roy is from the Pastor of a Baptist Church in Cleaveland Ohio--Rev. Roy Thompson, Ed from my pator's name Ed Laurena of Christian Bible Baptist Church here in the Philippines and Clay who is an evangelist in Cleveland Ohio--Larry Clayton."
"Royed's medical history is being discussed in details together with the attachment of this letter. Presently, Royed is confined in Paranaque Medical Center near our home due to pneumonia. He is suffering less and less oxygen (75%) in the lungs because of this illness."
