Anything that survived the devastating flood, which was very little, was then stolen by looters, leaving the family with nothing of value. They are staying with family members but desperately need help to rebuild their lives. The boys are starting school next week and don't even have school supplies.
Any amount you can donate will be very much appreciated and will go toward rent, food, and clothing. Please help this family get back on their feet!
The talented journalists of team NOS - Arjen Van der Horst, Wouter Zwart, Ryan Hermelijn and Kyle Lanningham spent some time with this family and will continue to stay in touch with the family and help where possible.
About this GoFundMe page: We have been in contact with the Huerta family and have their blessing to set up this page on their behalf. We will arrange to have the funds transfered to them as they prefer (in small amounts or all at once).
