Help Zoa recover from a senseless act of violence

Hello, My name is Aura and I started this go fund me to help raise money for my best friend Zoa who was recently shot during a random act of violence! On Saturday August 29th we were caught in the middle of a shootout in downtown oakland. After a peaceful fun night out with the girls we had all stopped to get some food before heading home, On our way to our car shots were fired and unfortunately we were at the wrong place at the wrong time. Zoa got shot in her arm and the bullet went straight through her arm and shattered her bones which is now causing her to have surgery. As of now, she cannot feel her fingers and we are praying that after the surgery goes well she will get all sensation back in her arm and fingers. Zoa is a single mother of 3 beautiful children her oldest being 16 her middle being 12 and her baby only 8 months. Due to this unfortunate event Zoa will not be able to go back to work for a few months. She just recently went back to work after exhausting all of her Sickleave while being pregnant with her youngest child. During the shoot out Zoa unfortunately dropped her purse with her brand new phone, and wallet inside carrying all of her debit cards, credit cards, cash, and other valuable items that will not be able to be retrieved. We understand that these are hard times for everyone these days but we are asking for you to please consider donating any amount possible in order for her to be able to pay her rent for the next few months, replace her new phone, help pay for her medical bills and just be able to provide for her children until she is fully healed. We appreciate any donation that is given and no amount is too small! Along with your donation, we ask for prayers to be lifted up for Zoa as she recovers through this traumatic experience. Thank you to each and every one of you. If a donation is not possible at this time we understand and would really appreciate it if this page was to be shared and re-posted so that we can get all the help we can to have Zoa back to where she needs to be. Thank you and God Bless
