Almost two weeks ago, while riding home from a friend's house on a moto, he was hit by a car and thrown off the moto.  He was taken to a hospital by ambulance and had an x-ray before being sent home.  The following day his brother's asked some Child Hope staff members to follow him home and look at Lydel because he didnt not look well.  He was then taken to a different hospital and admitted for observation and for a CT scan for his facial and head swelling as well as bleeding from the ears.  He has lost a few teeth, had his lip stitched up, facial swelling that has required surgery to alleviate pressure, and temporary loss of vision to his right eye.  He is improving and in great spirits!  Pray for his full recovery and that he suffers no long term issues.  We are hoping to raise enough money to alleviate the expenses over his bills so far and any that may come up.

He is a hard working young man and provides financially for his mom and sisters.  He works two jobs and teaches leather skills at a school and thankfully can return to his jobs when he is fully healed. Even with his two jobs he barely has enough money to provide for himself and for his family. 

Currently $450US has been spent on hospitalization, CT scan, procedures, medications, doctors appointments and transportation to this appointments.  We are hoping that by raising $650 we can cover the costs that have accumulated so far and provide for the ones that come up.  If any money is remaining after his care is complete, it will be kept for the medical care of others in our community.
