Fundraiser for Nikki & family in La Palma

Donation protected
I've set up this gofundme page as the next few months are going to be difficult for me and my family financially.

The lava seems to have slowed down, which is saying something as it was already moving painfully slowly towards our home. This means our home is still standing for now, but is directly in the path of where the lava will essentially go. We are all fine physically, but emotionally all of us are battered. It's very hard to just sit and wait to see how your life is going to change.

We have an apartment until 30th September, after that we're unsure where we will go. We will need to find a new home to rent and possibly replace some of our essential belongings and start building our lives back up.

A lot of you have asked if you can help in any way, as we will need help, I'm not at all ashamed to accept
it in these circumstances.

I just want to add my gratitude to everyone that has messaged me or called me to make sure we're ok, or offered to help us out. I am deeply touched by the kindness, support and love you've all been throwing at me constantly since this began. Any donation, big or small is greatly appreciated.

Updated: since writing this first text, the lava has taken our home and our whole community. The church, plaza, school, doctors, shops, pharmacy, everything.. :(. 
We are now in a different flat in Los Llanos and can rent it for a few months, so we have time to think about what happens next.
John will have to start a makeshift school when the volcano calms down a bit and isn't as aggressive as it is now. It shows no signs of stopping any time soon. It's literally raining ash outside. 

Hard times ahead.. appreciate everyones support and messages. Please don't stop sending them. It really helps keep us going.

Nikki, Pedro and John xx
