Bradley Dray and his wife Leah have been living in survival mode for over a month since Hurricane Maria ravaged Puerto Rico. No electricity, no running water, an open air cooling system, prepackaged food, spotty communication, horrible mosquitoes and stifling hot temperatures fully describes their current living conditions. To add to the misery, Bradley has been without work! He has totally lost his commercial fishing business, that he has had for four years, and has not been able to recover! It was primarily financed by the restuarant industry and tourism, which is nonexistent right now. Guestimates of recovery in Puerto Rico is over a year. There is little hope of rebuilding the fishing business to support the family.
Bradley and Leah's hearts' desire is to come home to North Carolina with thier two precious doggies, Maggie and Charlee, where they can start rebuilding their lives amongst the security of family and friends.
Many of you have asked how YOU CAN HELP! Their expenses of relocating are significant and they will have to find employment as they begin this transition. ANY love offering towards this goal will be greatly appreciated!! They are so humbled by this whole situation and feel blessed that so many care for them. They are very thankful for those who have already reached out to support them in so many ways.
Bradley's first mate, Jose Valentin "Chopa" and his family are also struggling to survive in PR. Bradley and Leah have been sharing their supplies with them all along. Thus, a portion of this goal will also go towards helping Chopa's family.
Your love offering of any amount is a great Help!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!!!!
