Noe F.Salgado's Lawyer/Funeral Cost

28991234_15232997980_r.jpegMy student, Noe Salgado Funez (on the right), was killed due to being in the wrong place at the wrong time. This happened in front of his aunt's house around 9:00pm. His brother was shot in the leg and foot and was treated at the hospital, but our beloved Noe died at the scene. Noe's dad was down the street and managed to hold Noe for his last few breaths. His brother Dennis, who is  an Oakland High newcomer student, arrived shortly after. 

Noe and Dennis left Honduras after they witnessed their uncle's murder. Once their father saved enough money to bring them from Honduras, he did, thinking that arriving in the U.S would provide the peace and safety that their home country couldn't offer. Noe, and his brother Dennis arrived to my class last year in the middle of the year once they were released from an ICE youth detention. 

Noe was a 17 year-old Newcomer student from Honduras. He was very funny, charming, loving, social, and had a huge heart.

Noe and Dennis understood that they were lucky to be here. They worked very hard to learn the material in a foreign-language. Dennis even tried to learn faster so that he could teach his younger brother, Noe. They were incredibly hard working students that were inseparable.

I have done a home visit with family, and they are in a desperate need for financial support to hire a lawyer to investigate the case and for funeral costs and any other unexpected financial burdens that may come their way.

In addition to the loss of his baby boy,  the irony of this story is the most painful. Noe's  father wanted to remove his sons from the violent climate in Honduras and worked hard to bring them to the United States thinking that it would help them get a better, safer, and more promising future.   

Since his family does not have the financial means necessary to pay for this unexpected lawyer and funeral costs, I am helping campaign for Noe. I will be withdrawing the funds under my name since the family does not have a bank account. I will then personally deliver a check they can cash.   

Please help me by helping them.
