Ey Swayel, Hello, My name is Melissa Charles. I'm from Chawathil First Nation. My kids father is Nolan Adams from the Lytton Band. His family is directly affected by this catastrophe and my heart breaks for them. My kids aunties, uncles, grandparents homes have all been destroyed by this fire.
All donations go directly to the families in need. Many people had to leave all of their belongings behind, most left and have no gas, clothes, emergency identification, and some even left with no shoes, etc..
My thoughts and prayers go to everyone involved </3 Any little bit helps.
I'm so sorry to those who have lost their homes and important belongings.
Much love & Keep safe.
We are so grateful! Thank you to everyone for your kind donations! We have acheived our goal in less than 24 hours. We're also beginning the process of getting clothing, food and supplies for the families in need. We are raising the goal to $20,000 now due to the overwhelming support.
Ey Swayel, Hello!
Thank you for the donations. I have contacted the Mayor of Lytton - Jan Polderman, as well as the Chief of Lytton - Janet Webster as to where the money will go now that we have acheived our goal! All funds will directly benefit the Lytton community.
