This GoFund me fund raiser is for the help and support of Honduran parents with 4 children who were traveling with the caravan with 1 of their 4 children. The grandparents are now caring for the 3 grandkids that were left behind in Honduras just to save the life of one of their grandkids who is terminally ill – both mother and father are marching towards the United States in hopes of treatment for their 6-year-old son. Unfortunately, the current health care system in Honduras is experiencing crisis due to poor management, making it impossible for the not-so-fortunate citizens to obtain public healthcare. María Argentina Paz and Rodrigo Villanueva started their journey on October 13. They both were traveling with the caravan through Mexico after crossing the Guatemalan border. They had to stop and stay behind due to the childs deteriorating conditions. They are now in Chiapas in a shelter trying to collect money to continue their journey. Due to the child's deteriorating condition, the parents had to leave behind their 9-month-old boy, a 4-year-old girl, and their 9-year-old boy. This fund raiser is to help the parents in the process and to seek medical attention in Mexico if the humanitarian help is not granted in the US. The child is in critical condition and his future is uncertain. The 3 children who were left behind with their grandparents also need your support with providing food, formula, diapers and medical needs.
