Kaawa-awa ang sinapit ng isang Canadian national na naabutan umano ng lockdown sa isla ng Boracay.
Mula ng lockdown, unti-unting naubos ang naipong pera ni Kevin Lench upang makaraos sa araw-araw na pangangailangan.
Nagpag-alaman na nanakawan siya ng pera at mga gamit.
Sinubukan ni Lench na humingi ng tulong sa mga awtoridad ngunit hindi niya nakilala ang mga kawatan.
Si Lench ay nakaratay ngayon sa isang ospital sa Boracay dahil sa malubhang sakit.
Samantala, isang GoFundMe page ang ginawa ng isang kaibigan ni Lench para makakalap ng pera at makauwi na ito sa kanilang bansa.

Our fellow Canadian friends, Kevin Lench from Vancouver Island, BC, Canada is seriously ill from liver failure and stuck in a hospital in the Philippines on the Island of Boracay.
His family needs to get him home as soon as possible as he is currently alone.
Kevin would give the shirt off his back to help a friend, let’s do the same for him.

Ito naman ang update mula kay Matthew:
Kevin is having difficulty either trying to get back to Canada and or moved to a better hospital, possibly in Manilla. There are a lot of hoops to get through in that Country so family and friends are trying to navigate the system for Kevin. He is very ill but in ok spirits. Hopefully on Monday, when things are open, more can be done to help him. Thank you to everyone who has donated thus far.
