Help Dominic’s family


Hi guys! Last week I shared my new friend Dominic’s story from Zimbabwe. If you missed it, here it is again- “It was brought to our attention that one of the families in the Zimbabwe community, kitchen burnt down. This resulted in the father of the family being in the hospital. Dominic, the oldest son of the family, got a loan from Imire Conservation to start his own garden, to sell veggies to help pay for his fathers medical bills. When their kitchen caught fire, Dominics father ran in to save their only cooking pot and the flaming roof collapsed on him, resulting in 6th degree burns. We got to go out and plant seedlings in his garden. Two of Dominic’s younger brothers were pulled from school to help with the garden to hopefully bring in veg funds sooner. My heart just breaks knowing he went in to save a pot because they wouldn’t have been able to afford another, and are now further in debt. This community is so beautiful, how they all come together to help each other out. Where Dominic could have wallowed in frustration and sadness, he used his resources to help his family however he could. If that’s not inspiring, I don’t know what is.”
An update on Dominic’s dad- He was discharged yesterday, but won’t be released until his hospital bill is paid off. The remainder is $350. The loan Dominic took out for the piping for irraigation in the garden is $200. 
Im aiming to raise $650 for a little change on the tail end so they can have some wiggle room.
This community coming together was one of the most miraculous things I’ve ever witnessed. No one has heaps of money there, but are always good to help one another out. I’m taking it upon myself to raise what I think is achievable to help the family out. 
It would be wonderful if you could donate whatever is in your means! 
Thanks for reading, and thanks for all the support and love towards Dominic’s family.
