Conjoined Filipino Twins Need Help

The names of the twins are Rezzia and Rezzie. They are both eight months old conjoined twins (thoraco-omphalopagus twins) who are joined in the chest and abdomen.
They are left by their 13 year old mother to the governments care, DSWD, since they were born at the Velez Hospital in Cebu City. Their mother was 12 years old when she was raped by a relative in Mindanao.
The smaller of the twins, Rezzie has a congenital heart defect and hydrocephalus. She required round the clock oxygen and heart medication.
A shunt (VPS) insertion is needed, This is a procedure to correct the hydrocephalus condition.
It might cost P100,000. Any small amount can go a long way in helping the twins.
Sponsors for an operation and adoption would help a lot to this kids.
How will we course the donations? Course it through te Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and look for Ms. Leah Colis. Phone Number (+63 32) 2330261.
