Help Fadi get back to work!

My friend Fadi has been going through some tough times, I know he’s struggling when he has asked for help. He has been without a car for a few months and he needs a new vehicle to keep his business running. 

Without transportation he has not been able to work effectively.  As a single father of 2 young children, it’s also been a big challenge to get the kids to school and their activities without proper transportation.   Since the Covid outbreak and lockdowns that started last March, the tourism industry has suffered a lot on this island leaving many businesses still closed or suffering, including his own.

Fadi has pursued and accomplished his dreams of being a kite surfing pro, traveling the world, which led him to finding love and family here in the Fuerteventura, Canary Islands.  Since retiring as a pro, he has been a surf and kitesurf coach, teaching ocean lovers the value of bonding with mother nature, and coaching them to be the best that they can be.  His other passion is the art of fish printing.  Issa Gyotaku has been gaining popularity in the Canary Islands and Europe.  He is also a judge on the GKA KiteSurf World Tour, but unfortunately has cancelled all of the events due to Covid since March of last year. 

After his divorce last year he basically lost everything, and has gone through homelessness, depression, and the challenges that come with starting over again. 

I’ve always known Fadi as a strong person who has never asked for anything and has always been proud of his accomplishments, so when he asked me for help that’s when I knew he was in trouble!  He has bounced back strongly, doing everything he can, doing any house maintenance work, gardening, and painting to make sure he and his children are safe and sound.   But just getting by every month without a vehicle to work with, he has found the challenge overwhelming, and would like to get reliable transportation to get his business up and running again, for a better future for him and his kids.

The money donated will help Fadi get a work vehicle and also help towards the kids’ health, education and everyday needs until he can get back on his feet up and running again.
