Hurricane Harvey-Family lost it all

Hello my name is Sonia Melendrez from Houston Tx. My brother Peter Gonzalez and his wife Erika Gonzalez like many other families have lost everything due to Hurricane Harvey. They didnt have home insurance and have 2 little ones a 2 week old new born and a 3 yr old. Being that he had a new born and as many he wasn't In The evacuation zone so he stayed. Soon enough the water became chest deep in his neighborhood and quickly 3 ft of water was in his home. A neighbor helped them with their big truck out of their neighborhood and was transported by boat to his inlaws. Everything seemed better until soon after water rose and once again was flooded in at his inlaws. After a day he was able to get help and was rescued again by boat this time with his inlaws.
Since they have lost it ALL they will be needing help for clothing, diapers, formula, home repairs, food, entirely everything. Any help is appreciated, we thank you for your consideration and your help. Keeping everyone in prayer.

Hola mi nombre es Sonia Melendrez de Houston TX. Mi hermano Pedro Gonzalez y su esposa Erika Gonzalez, como muchas otras familias han perdido todo debido al Huracán Harvey. Ellos no tenian seguro de casa y tienen 2 pequeños una recien nacida de dos semanas y un nino de 3 anos. Como muchos él y su familia no estaban en la zona de evacuación siendo que se quedaron en casa. En solo horas el agua subio profunda y rapidamente en su vecindad, 3 pies de agua estaban adentro de su casa. Gracias a Dios un vecino con su camioneta grande les ayudó salir de su vecindad y fue transportado por barco a casa de sus parientes. Todo pareció mejor hasta que en horas después el agua empezo a subir atrapando a la familia completa. Después de un día con la gracia de Dios y la ayuda de unos amigos de mi hermano mayor fueron rescatados otra vez por barco. Ellos ahora han perdido todo puesto que ellos necesitarán la ayuda para ropa, pañales, fórmula, reparaciones de su casa, alimento, completamente todo. Cualquier ayuda es apreciada, le agradecemos por su consideración y su ayuda. Que Dios los bendiga.
