Please help Vivienne bury her mother

Vivienne Lawrence has suffered several trials and set backs throughout her life. After years of immigration woes, and financial instability she was recently able to start a new career helping youth who have been in foster care  to find their voice and navigate the system. This job has brought Vivienne great joy and gave a her a a way to financially support her mother and younger siblings over the years especially when her mother was unable to work.
Vivienne is now dealing with yet another traumatic life event; the sudden and tragic death of her Mother.

Her Mother Angella lived in the poorest part of a third world country where education as well other necessities are not readily available. She spent her life in domestics, eventually unable to find much work. Angella is survived by four children and two grandchildren. Angella was only 50 years old when she was called home.

Vivienne is the oldest of the siblings and is the one that will have to deal with the financial fall out of this tragedy. She may potentially have to adopt her youngest sibling who is ten years old and now an orphan.

Any help you can offer Vivienne would be most appreciated. She needs to fly to Jamaica to procure a burial plot and other funeral arrangements for her mother. She will also need to cover the legal and other costs related to becoming guardian of her youngest sibling. Any help whatsoever will be received with the utmost gratitude, be it financial, prayers and well wishes or emotional support.

Vivienne hopes to hold a memorial service here in Philadelphia for her mother upon her return; date and location to be determined at a later date. Thank you so much in advance for any help you are able to offer.
