Help for Houston/ Huerta family

Sonia and Cesar Huerta along with their three adorable kids, 8 yr-old Cesar Jr, 7-yr old Ethan and baby Rosie have lost everything in the Houston flood.  Their home is uninhabitable so they are currently staying with family members.  This is the second time the family has been devastated by flooding and the kids are now too traumatized to even go back inside the house. They have little money and were not insured.  

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).
