…Mother Appeals for Financial Aid to Assist With Surgery Abroad

Marla Marie Encalada

The single mother of three needs assistance with securing her daughter’s travel documents.  The cost of Kareema’s airfare is separate from the amount necessary to defray expenses related to the surgery.


Marla Marie Encalada, Mother of Accident Victims

“I need help, support with the visa.  If anyone is out there in the public that can help me provide the money or the expense for my child’s medical care I would plea to the public to just, you know, do me that big favor.  My baby is six-years-old, she’s in a lot of pain and she cries all day, all night.”

“What is the target that you are trying to meet in terms of the overall expense remaining?”

“The amount of money that is necessary for you to go forward.”


Marla Marie Encalada

“The air ambulance alone is twenty-five thousand dollars and that’s only that.  That doesn’t cover the surgery in America, so I am pleading to the public, you know.  My bank account number is 230822 at the Belize Bank branch under Marla Marie Encalada.  My phone number is 633-0829.”


Isani Cayetano

“Final question.  Has there been a formal police report?  Has there also been any charge or have there been charges brought against the driver of the vehicle that ran your kids over?”


Marla Marie Encalada

“No charges have been brought to date.  I have given a statement, my six-year-old has given her statement of what happened on the twenty-eight of October.  She did great on her interview.  They took down her statement, she signed her paper but still nothing yet.”


The driver of the vehicle, also a resident of Ladyville, has since been served with a notice of intended prosecution.

    Sorry for your tragedy, hopefully you receive more than what you need. Have the minister of health help you out with hospital abroad to defray costs. God bless.
