My name is Franz Huerbana. I live in Las Vegas Nevada.
My parents, Rolando Huerbana (70) and Honnie Gail Huerbana (64) have retired and is now residing in Davao City, Philippines. A few days before Christmas 2017, the lower region of the Philippines, Mindanao, was hit by a tropical storm. They have faced many storms in their lives but this one lasted for a few days causing major flooding and mud slides.
Our home there in davao was affected by it. The muddy water rose to their chests and it damaged everything in the house. My family evacuated to a church and stayed there for Christmas Eve and day. When it was claimed safe by officials, they returned to the home, which was still under mud at that time and they found everything destroyed and swept away.
My brother, Aubrey Huerbana, and i, started this gofundme account to help them replace necessary items in their home such as beds, stove, microwave, tv, couch, tables etc.
The money will also go into helping fix the damages into the house’s structure as well as the water systems and plumbing as well as hiring local contractors and landscape workers to make sure everything gets back to normal and safe conditions.
My parents also built a little “mom and pop” store in front of the house to help with bills and such and that too was destroyed. This money will help them to simply get back on their feet. Having this tragedy happen during Christmas caught us off guard due to having most money spent already for gifts and such.
We’ve decided to directly send my mother, Honnie Gail, through western union after we withdraw it from my Wells Fargo account.
To raise funds for Huerbana family for the replacement of appliances and furniture, as well as repair sink & other home water systems destroyed by Typhoon Vinta in Davao City.
