Dear Smile Rescue Fund Friends,
We have great news: Erick will be arriving on November 21st to begin his treatment journey. A reminder that Erick (8 years old) was attacked by a chimpanzee in his home country, The Republic of the Congo. Though he (miraculously) survived, his face was left extremely disfigured. Read the entire story here. He will be treated at Stony Brook Hospital to reconstruct his face so he can eat properly again (he weighs only 40 pounds now) and regain some semblance of normalcy in his life.
We have arrangements for accommodations for Erick and his companion, but need your help with:
-transportation to/from the hospital, doctor’s appointments and excursions
-offsetting the cost of food and incidentals
If you can lend a hand, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. For donations, please visit our website and click on the “donate now” link: www.smilerescuefund.org.
Thank you in advance for your support!
Leon & the SRFK team
