Help Lydia re-build after Florence

Hurricane Florence brought catostrophic  flooding and devastating damage to Lydia and her 5-year-old daughter Eleni’s home in Longs, South Carolina. 

As her sister, I’ve created this Go Fund Me page to help us band together and surround them with comfort. I hope we can lessen their worry and stress by showing our support. 

Any donations made will help them re-build their lives and repair their house to make it livable again. This includes replacing all the drywall, treating for mold, fixing affected wiring, replacing basic necessities, furniture and toys (especially Eleni’s play kitchen that she loved and is worried about). 

The river is supposed to crest on Tuesday. Prayers are appreciated to comfort them as more flooding is still likely and damages continue to grow. 

Thank you reading her story and for your kindness and love.

Elizabeth (Lydia’s sister in MN)
