Louidgiena & Louidline Funeral Fund

The unthinkable happened to the Louima family on October 14, 2014.  Tragically,  their two daughters - Louidgiena (2) and Louidline (4)  both drowned in the canal behind there Margate home...

In a heartbeat, the children of this hard working immigrant Haitian family of Louigens & Merline were gone.  Like so many legal American immigrants, the promise and possibility of the opportunity they sought in America was destined to be realized in the future of their young children.  Louigens holds two jobs and works as construction laborer whenever possible.   Merline is a house keeper at a local hotel.  With humble means, like so many amongst us, they got by.  They could have never planned  for funerals for their young children. 

Please assist in any way you can to help this deserving, family with the funeral costs.  Donate, communicate, or promote this effort in your circles.  Any parent can understand this is an unthinkable tragedy.  As a community, we call on our collective humanity to do the right thing. 

Additional details on the family to follow in in the next few days as well as notice of public memorials.

Respectfully submitted by friends of the Louima family
