BELIZE CITY, Wed. Sept. 16, 2020– It seems everybody is “taking a licking” with Covid-19 right now, but we all have to pull together to help the most unfortunate among us.
Football legend Rudolph “Peru” Olivera has been bedridden since Friday, September 4, when he was discovered immobile on the bathroom floor of his Santa Barbara Street home, where he currently resides along with younger brother, another legend, Wayne “Hogman” Olivera.
Hogman, himself a recovering stroke victim who is doing his exercises to remain healthy, said that Peru, a diabetic, had recently returned home after two days in hospital, and after taking a cold shower, he was apparently unable to get up from the floor. Hogman called another veteran baller, Sebastian “Sabe” Nunez, who does massage therapy; and after examining Peru, Sabe concluded that he had probably experienced a stroke.
Peru has become practically bedridden, and now requires daily care-giver attention. The burden has become overwhelming for their sister who hosts both brothers at her Santa Barbara Street home.
Through this medium, we are reaching out to veteran footballers at home and abroad for assistance in meeting the care-giver expense for Peru.
You can contact Wayne “Hogman” Olivera at 673-5310.
