Hurricane Relief/Apoyo Tia Isela :(

We are coming to you all  to gather some help for our Tia Isela who's family suffered enormous loss of water, food, clothing and shelter due to the devastating flooding that took place in Tuxpan, Nayarit.  We started a GoFundMe page in hopes of helping their recovery efforts through this next month.  

Her house is seen in yellow (the first picture).  As seen in the picture Abuelita Pachita, Tia Isela and a few others were rescued via small canoe on Wednesday from the second story balcony by my courageous Tio Miguel and Tio Pablo.

As of Thursday the water has receded some, but the resources are slow to arrive as roads have been washed away and the devastation widespread.  

Tia Isela and her family reside in the lower colonies where the river has not receded and the flood waters remain high.  She has lost her business and all that is on the first floor of her home, but we are so thankful that God has spared the lives of those staying in the household and we pray for their health at the evacuation center.  

We are asking for donations for immediate relief for clothes, food and water which daughters Karina and Wendy will purchase and deliver in truck loads from Tepic.  We are praying that once the immediate relief arrives and the situation stabilizes, the remaining donations would help them get back on their feet with the basic appliances (refrigerator and stove).

100% of donations will be delivered by my mom (Sandra).  We sent aid earlier Wednesday, but this is a tragedy that will effect the family for many months to come.  

We covet your prayers and are asking for any donation amount as soon as possible.   Please share this with others who may be close to our family and if there is a cousin who can send me a translation of this in Spanish, please email it to me and I will update this.  

Thank you,

Justin Duarte
