Brother Nacho & Sister Maria Flood

My brother "Nacho" and sister's "Maria" families have lost everything in the flooding from Harvey. Their homes are by the bayou and they remain under 8 feet of water. They left their homes with the mandatory evacuations and just a backpack with enough clothes for two days. We are heartbroken for them, Ignacio and Michelle Fonseca, Maria and Phil Sotolongo, and their children:

Francisco Fonseca (9)
Alejandro Fonseca (7)
Ysabel Sotolongo (9)
Felipe Sotolongo (6)
Santiago Sotolongo (3)

Though we can't replace everything they owned, we'd like to help them financially so that they can begin to rebuild their lives.

With this effort to help them, we hope they will have enough to split the funds and secure temporary housing (could be for a period of over 12 months), plus purchase items like beds, furniture, appliances, toys and the many other essential items they have lost.

We thank you for reaching out with prayers and offers to help my brother and sister. Anything you can contribute to help them, we will forever be grateful. Blessings and love to you and your families!
