Karateka responds to appeal for assistance
by Ramon Dacawi

As he normally does when he can, former world karate champion Julian Chees sent cash, this time 200 Euros to help a teenage girl blow her candles and a 38-year-old patient foot the bill.

Converted to P12,000, the amount was divided between Joy Ligudon who recently celebrated her 14th birthday, courtesy of Luisa’s Café along Session Road, and 38-year-old Amor Orpilla, who needed cash for the repair of her fistula so she could resume her thrice-a-week dialysis.

“I read in our Baguio papers about the plight of these two girls and had Renate Doth, the secretary of our club, send the amount they needed to celebrate and settle medical bills,” Chees said.

Ligudon, the youngest dialysis patient at the Baguio General Hospital and Medical Center, earlier received cash support from Chees for her lifetime dialysis.

“Tell her to spend part of what I’m sending to continue her natal celebration,” Chees, a former world champion in kata (formal exercises in traditional karate), advised.

Orpilla, an orphan, also needed cash to pay for the repair of her fistula to enable her to continue her three-times-a-week hemodialysis at the Baguio General Hospital.

This was the latest support to the sick in Baguio and in the Cordillera from Chees, a former member of the German national karate team who courses his medical support back home through JC Kinderhilfe, a foundation he established for poor patients here and in Mountain Province.
