Working hard to support his family, Alexander De Leon was taking on extra work as a plumber after his regular job. One day, as he was riding home on his motorbike, he got a flat tire and crashed into some rocks by the roadside.

The accident left Alexander with serious injuries to his knee and foot. Fortunately, bystanders helped him at the scene and called an ambulance. He was then taken to a hospital in Rosario for two days before being transferred to San Jose, Batangas, for specialized orthopedic care.

However, even with skilled surgeons and strong family support, Alexander’s challenges persisted. Discovering he had diabetes added complexity to his recovery.

Alexander faced increasing medical bills and financial burdens, leading him and his family to turn to Operation Blessing (OB) for help.

Not turning a deaf ear to Alexander’s needs, OB provided assistance through its Medical Assist Project.

OB’s Healthcare team helped Alexander in many ways, not only with his physical recovery but also with his new medical condition and the stress it caused his family. He was assisted for three physical therapy sessions to regain strength and mobility.

Operation Blessing continued its support by providing Alexander with insulin and medication to manage his diabetes. He was also supplied with nutritional supplements and groceries, easing the financial strain on his family and ensuring they had essential nourishment.

With time, Alexander grew stronger physically and emotionally. Despite ongoing challenges, he approaches life with determination and gratitude.

“Thank you so much for your effort to come here and bring assistance. The help you gave means a lot to me and my family,” Alexander said.
