Dear Family,Friends and Community. My name is Vanessa Galarza from Wilmington DE. I'm organizing this campaign on behalf of my husband Neftali Galarza Jr to help his niece in PR.
The devastation of hurricane Maria left many residents of Puerto Rico homeless and in dire need of food and supplies. We are raising money for my niece Nelida Marrero, her husband and 5 children whom have been heavily affected by the hurricane in PR. They live in a one story home in Campanilla Toa Baja, PR . Their home flooded reaching over 5 feet of water where they lost everything including their vehicles. Images show their house and her children being rescued from their town. The water has receded, but they continue to live inside the house sleeping on the floor because their beds and furniture is wet risking the growth of mold around them. There is no running water or electricity in most towns. It has been over 2 weeks since the hurricane hit PR, however the assistance has been slow to arrive receiving very minimal supplies to only last them 2-3 days of water and food. Since their vehicles sustained water damage they can't drive into towns for additional supplies.
This is a humanitarian crisis and we are asking please if you can help my niece, the Marrero Family with recovery to normalize their lives and rebuild their home.
The money raised will go towards rebuilding their lives, survival for food and supplies and home repairs. They have nothing at all. No amount is too small. Your generous donations are greatly appreciated. Thank you.
