A Filipino worker who has been undocumented since 2014 is appealing for financial assistance for his child currently hospitalized in the Intensive Care Unit of a local hospital, while his wife, a former house helper, also undocumented from same year takes care of their other son at home.

Jason, a twenty years old Filipino and former house helper in a local household, finished his contract and was given a release by his employer. Unfortunately, he was cheated by a company that promised him employment and so he found himself undocumented, His wife Belinda, thirty three years old and house helper who ran away from her employer’s home, gave birth to their  two children. The family has been living in a small rented space with no source of income and to worsen situation, the youngest child is currently hospitalized and in an ICU with medical case of blood infection.

“The bill piles up every day and I just don’t know where to get the money to pay for these bills, I have been going around begging for financial assistance from friends and people, but every day gets tougher to find sources,” said Jason. He added that he could not find a regular job since he has no legal papers and often settled for part-time jobs. His spouse Belinda takes care of the children at home.

Jason told The Times that his family had approached the Philippine Embassy regarding their situation and that travel documents have been issued for his two children and wife, but financial assistance is not available. “I don’t know where and who to turn for help anymore and hospital calls me every day asking for payments,” added Jason.

“I would like to ask for help from anyone out there to help me raise the amount to pay for my child’s piled up bills and funds to bring my family home safe to Philippines, I’ll work for anyone to pay for their help extended to my family. I also appeal to the Philippine government and Philippine President to help me find solution to this problem for the sake of my young children,” said Jason.
