Sinagbayan, a cultural activist group which Marfred helped establish and develop is sending out this appeal to all those whose lives his art and craft has touched:
Our Kasamang Marfred is seriously ill. He needs financial help for his medicines and the series of laboratory tests which would stabilize his condition. Though battered by his illness, he is optimistic that he will still be able to pass on his craft to young artists, dancers and cultural activists. With your help, we believe he will.
For donations, kindly contact +639207216759 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let us please, please help Marfred.
