In Memory Of Succor: Help His Family Recover From Their Debt

Help my Husband.
My name is Rita, aged 35 originally from the village of Ibrampur in Goa. My father cultivates bananas and rears goats for a living. To make ends meet, I worked as a domestic help for few years before I married my husband Succor in 2007. Succor was employed as a driver to an Arab family in Kuwait. I live in Bhayandar,  Mumbai with my two daughters, Marushka, 8  and 4.  
On Nov 2016, Succor had a blackout whilst on driving duty and nearly had a fatal accident. His boss sent him back to India to have a medical check up. On Dec 2016, Succor collapsed whilst playing with the girls. We rushed him to the hospital and after many tests he was diagnosed with a brain aneurysms. In the months that followed, we have spent all our savings and even borrowed money to meet his treatment costs. His doctor has advised him to undergo 2 brain (minimally invasive) procedures, each costing approximately 4.5lakhs each. If he does not undergo the procedures, he could have a brain bleed anytime that could cause him to be paralysed or die. Succor is the only earning member of our family, and without him I will not be able to provide for, leave alone educate my daughters. I am also not in a position to borrow the money since I come from a very poor family. I cannot take loans either as Succor will not be able to return to his job in Kuwait and I will be caught in the debt trap for the rest of my life and that of my daughters. I am appealing to you to please help me raise the money to save my husband's life so that he can provide for me and our 2 young daughters.

Dear Supporters,

It is with deep regret that we inform you about the passing of Succour Fernandes at KEM hospital, Mumbai today, 7th July 2017.  

As we informed you in our previous updates, medical expenses incurred by the family for his treatment since December 2016 have crossed 25 lakhs.
We will continue to fundraise to enable the family to clear their debts and grieve in peace for their husband, father, son and brother.

On behalf of Succour's family we would like to express our gratitude to all those who have shown compassion towards our cause and have opened their hearts and donated generously.  We are also grateful to those who couldn't give but have held the family in prayer through these difficult times. God bless you all.

Thank you!
