While trying to intervene, she was shot and critically injured. Despite the best efforts of the community and medical response, Sofima Pedragosa Alim passed away a short time later. During the incident her surviving husband, Augosto Alim, was also seriously injured but is currently in recovery at a local medical facility.
Sofima, 35, leaves behind her 2 children (Zcharalayne, 10 years of age and Kurt, 6 years of age) and a husband. She was a kind soul, loving mother and cherished member of her community. The family will never be the same and the recovery process will be required from family and friends.
I grew up in the Philippines and my uncle (Augusto) is like a father to me. Our hearts are broken as we navigate this unimaginable event and attempt to find a way forward.
Augusto's family could use any and all the support in this very difficult time. Some of the costs that need to be covered are:
- Funeral expenses
- Medical expenses
- Food and care during recovery
- Offset lost income
- Family travel for support and funeral
Every dollar will be donated to Augusto's family - your support is hugely appreciated. Thank you!
