Juana & Cristina - Harvey rebuild

Hurricane Harvey had a life changing impact on thousands of people. There are certain donation drives asking for funds knowing full well that only a portion of the funds will ever make their way to people who actually need them while most of the funds will disappear in administrative fees.

 

This Go Fund Me effort is for one family of two women who have lost everything. Juana Contreras, a widower in her 60s and her daughter Cristina, an office worker in her 30s. They are my mother-in-law and sister-in-law, and despite my wife and I doing everything we can to help, their need is still massive.

 

A number of friends and family have asked them what is needed. Juana and Cristina are still shell shocked and don’t know how to answer that question when the answer is everything. Their modest home at 11026 Lafferty Oaks in Houston (close to Hunting Bayou) was flooded over three feet and everything was trashed. Though the home is in a humble neighborhood and their possessions were not extravagant, it’s all they had. They need to replace walls, cabinets, bathroom tiles, A/C unit, beds, chairs, sofa, washer, dryer, refrigerator, stove, blender, clothes… the list seems endless. A lifetime of saving and filling out a home that was ruined in less than four days.

 

Please consider helping Juana and Cristina rebuild their lives. This fund has been directly linked to Juana Contreras’ bank account. We are aiming to raise $25,000. 

 

There are many scam Go Fund Me pages online. Their 11026 Lafferty Oaks address can be verified on the Harris County Appraisal District website at http://www.hcad.org.

Thank you in advance for your help,

El huracán Harvey ha impactado miles de vidas por siempre. Existen ciertos esfuerzos de donación pidiendo apoyo y sabiendo bien que solo una porción de ese dinero llegará a las personas que realmente lo necesitan ya que gran parte será consumido en gastos administrativos.

 

Este esfuerzo Go Fund Me es para una familia de dos mujeres que han perdido todo. Juana Contreras, una viuda en sus 60s y su hija Cristina, una trabajadora de oficina en sus 30s. Ellas son mi suegra y cuñada, y a pesar que mi esposa y yo hemos hecho todo lo posible por ayudarlas, su necesidad es aún masiva.

 

Un número de amigos y familiares les han preguntado que requieren. Juana y Cristina siguen en estado de shock y no saben cómo responder a esa pregunta cuando la respuesta es todo. Su casa en 11026 Lafferty Oaks en Houston (cerca al Hunting Bayou) se inundó con más de tres pies de agua y todo quedó arruinado. Aunque su hogar se encuentra en un vecindario humilde y sus posesiones no eran extravagantes, es todo lo que tenían. Necesitan reemplazar paredes, gabinetes, baldosas de baño, aire acondicionado, camas, sillas, sofá, lavadora, secadora, refrigerador, estufa, licuadora, ropa… la lista parece no acabar. Toda una vida de ahorro y haber llenado su casa y todo quedó en ruina en menos de cuatro días.

 

Por favor consideren apoyar a Juana y Cristina en reconstruir sus vidas. Este fondo ha sido ligado directamente a la cuenta bancaria de Juana. Tenemos como meta recaudar $25,000.

 

Hay muchos estafadores en la internet. Su dirección de 11026 Lafferty Oaks puede ser verificada en la página de internet del Harris County Appraisal District en http://www.hcad.org.


Gracias por su ayuda,
