A single mother from Carmen, Davao del Norte, Elmie Ma is seeking help from Bantay Bata 163 in providing the needed medical treatment for her 8 month old baby boy, Joshua.

This little angel was diagnosed with Congenital Heart Disease. "Maghangak siya, dali lang ubuhon, kuan pud kanang dali lang kaayo siya kapuyon, inig masobrahan siya ug dula", Ma said. (He has difficulty in breathing, easily get sick and tired everytime he plays.")

Elmie Ma does not have any source of income.  She only depends on her parents for all the needs of her child. 

Joshua needs an operation. But the family cannot provide the child's needs. Thus, his mother appeals for help.

"Naglisud na ang akong pamilya sa maintenance sa iyang tambal. {cut-to) Nanghinaut ko na inyong tabangan para maoperahan ang akong anak na maayo na siya." (My family finds it difficult to provide his medicines.  I hope that you can help my son for his operation and total treatment.)
