Help Abe Giesbrecht in his recovery

On the evening of  February 9th 2018 Abe Giesbrecht was working at his family business with an industrial sized snowblower.  Abe and his family put all their money and hope into starting a business in October of 2017. The expectation was that Abe was going to expand and add on to an existing storage facility business and grow the company so he could spend more time with his family.  Currently the storage facility does not bring in enough revenue for them to live. Abe was working at the storage facility business in the evenings and working a full time job in order to keep his family afloat. They had planned to live on this modest income until the expansion and growth was finished. Through no fault of his own and due to this tragic incident it is making the relaization of this hope nearly impossible. They are, however, a faithful family who put their trust in God above all else and are humbly appealing to their community for aid.  Abe is in a lot of pain. He lost three fingers and most of his thumb on his left hand. He had one surgery already and there are plans for a second surgery in five or six months depending on how the wounds have healed. They are also dealing with the possibility of infection. There are many doctors appointments and physio appointments during this healing process. The new expenses the family now has to pay are making life very difficult. The family would gratefully accept funds to help pay their mortgage, pay for food and necessities for the couple and their four children, and to pay for any unforseen non-funded medical expenses. Again Abe is the provider for his family and at this difficult time is asking for help. They need financial aid, but can also use any able hands to help with odd jobs around the new business. The family could use whatever help is offered as soon as possible. Thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity.
