Donate to help the Mbatha children and family

Donation protected
Hi, My name is Karla Gibson and I am fundraising for the Mbatha children and their aunt (beneficiary), Horelia Kuria, as she is their current primary caregiver. Our next-door neighbors and friends, Gedion and Ruth Mbatha were killed in a horrific car accident caused by a wrong-way driver early Sunday morning, as they were heading home from celebrating Gedion's birthday with friends. .

Gedion and Ruth were the nicest and friendliest of neighbors. They leave behind 3 young children ages, 12, 8, and 3. These children will need as much support as possible in the days, months, and years to come. Many of their family members reside in Kenya and those here will have the task of caring for and ensuring these children can continue to live their lives with as little interruption as possible.

The family would appreciate any assistance to cover burial/funeral expenses, as well as financial assistance to continue to raise these children in their home and give them everything their parents would have loved to. Any contribution will be greatly appreciated and funds will be directly distributed to Horelia.
