Help with Sophia's medical bills and funeral costs

Sofia, the neice of Pastor Kranthipaul ("Pastor KP") from Soutern India,
had been suffering with bone cancer for several years. Sofia's mother would take her for chemotherapy at a hospital for quite some time --but the medical expenses took EVERYTHING. There just was no more.

You can see that treatment could not continue (see my post and pictures on facebook) not even palliative care, and Sofia's family had to sit by and watch her suffer.
At one time mom couldn't bear anymore and attempted ending her own life by drinking restroom cleaning acid. She was in a coma 3 days. The entire family, more than once, tried escaping this world's pain.

I GET this! No judgement here -only love. When my own daughter Bella was at her lowest I just wished for her and I to go to heaven. I just wanted the suffering to end. Upon hearing this full story yesterday I was FULLY able to thank God for the suffering in our past because I get to enter into another's pain with true empathy (2 Corinthians 1:3-5).

So Sofia entered heaven - embraced by her Creator and lover of her soul- just last week.

Mom is now in the ICU with Covid that she acquired while taking Sofia for chemo. Father has been out of work 3 months due to lockdown. They are homeless. Money was borrowed for funeral expenses and must be paid back. Hospital billing department calls daily to collect expenses incurred during Sofia's illness.

I want to help this family and will be starting a go fund me campaign.
I need to raise around 6,000 USD to pay all these bills AND have leftover so Father can get back on his feet and start a small business.

If ever there was an opportunity to be the hands and feet of Christ (something we say a lot) it is now.
