Help feed our family in Venezuela
On 11 July Paula Elba Solís de Pinto, 81, was violently murdered on her way to feed stray animals; another victim of the tragic reality that is part of daily life in Caracas. We're devastated from this unspeakable circumstance and reeling from the loss of this incredible woman who was the glue of our family. She left behind a family dependant on her strength; including her husband, who has Parkinson’s, and a daughter who also has medical needs. With their income, our family struggles to have food on a regular basis.
As we deal with the emotional grief, we need to send food, medicines, and the like. These care packages are essential to reducing the burden of everyday life and to give our family the space to deal with grief.
How your donation will be used
All donations will go 100% to our family. We have been sending packages with our own money and are asking for help to alleviate the out of pocket expense and better care for our family. We buy items directly and ship them through a private shipping company that delivers directly to their door. This is the cheapest and most reliable way to get things to them.
Please help us. Even the smallest amount makes a huge difference to our family. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
I hope that we are approaching the end but we still need help at this point. If you are feeling inspired by what you are hearing in the news, please consider donating. If not to us to any of the many Venezuelans on GoFundMe or to LoveVenezuela (a collection of non-profits based in Miami, FL).
As always, if you have any questions feel free to send me a message, I'm always happy to talk.
