A public plea has been made to St. Lucians to assist one of their countrymen.
According to a post on crowdfunding site, youcaring.com, a resident from La Caye, Dennery, identified as Hilary Charles, aka Bolo, is suffering from “kidney disease, fluid collection in legs and upper area, just to name a few”.
The post was written by Bolo’s sister, Curtisha Charles, who appealed for financial assistance from the public.
“He now has to go to dialysis 3 times a week until all the swelling goes down, where after he may be sent home. He will, however need to be on dialysis forever afterwards,” the brother said.
“Unfortunately he has no insurance and needs all the financial help he can get. Therefore all the funds received here will go towards his treatment in St. Maarten,” he added.
