Chile Fire - My Mom Lost Everything...

We need your help to restore some normalcy in my elderly mother's life after she lost everything in the horrible fire that destroyed so many lives in Chile recently.

On Saturday April 12th over 2,000 homes in Valparaiso Chile were destroyed in a devasting fire.  My mother, Fresia, a 72yr old woman who lives alone lost her home where she had lived for over 50yrs and where all my childhood memories were created.  She lost everything she had including her cash savings and was left with nothing more than the clothes on her back.  We are very thankful that she was in a safe place when the fire started and that she suferred no personal injuries. We feel very blessed. 

Tragically however my mother is left displaced without a home and It will be a long time before the government and is able to rebuild the homes of those affected by this disaster.  In the meantime we must secure the land where her house once stood.  We need to fence the property so that no one arbitrarily takes possesssion of her land.
With your help my mother can begin to rebuild her life and hopefully start to put this traumatic event behind her.
