At four years old, Jericho Aldojesa is weak and sickly because of a congenital heart disease. Coming from an impoverished family, Jericho has yet to be given sufficient medical treatment for his condition.

After long hours of waiting for the medical result in a hospital, Alfreda Aldojesa brought her son Jericho to Bantay Bata 163, realizing it could be the only chance to ask help for the young boy’s congenital heart disease.

"May butas po ang puso dalawa atsaka baliktad po ang ugat nya kailangan po syang operahan dun sa ugat nya (He has 2 holes in his heart and he also has an inverted ventricles that need operations)", mom Alfreda narrated to Bantay Bata.

Without regular income to support Jericho’s medication, Alfreda exhausts all means for her youngest child to survive.

Jericho has been frail and sickly since he was born, yet until now, the child waits for an open heart surgery that is only possible through kind hearts who will hear his silent cry.
