Funding the Falafel* guy!
$9,925 of $10,000 goal
There are 3 people injured by this incident. One of the women is severly injured, and she has a young baby at home. Please donate to help these people. Every dollar will be appreciated!
Here is an article about the incident.
I am writing this update to tell you that I am giving money to these 3 people.: Naceur (the owner), Rosa, and Rebeca. For Rebeca, Natividad, her sister-in-law, will be receiving the fund for personal reasons.
I have their bank account numbers, and money will be withdrawn to my mom's bank account and give the money to the beneficiaries through bank accounts. For personal issue, my mom's bank account will be used.
Rebeca will receive $2000, Rosa will receive $3000, and Naceur will receive the rest. This was decided according to their needs as they told me how much money they need.
Thankfully, most of their medical bills are covered by their insurance, and the money you donated will be used to pay their bills and rents as they will not be able to work for quite a long time.
Thank you so much! I will update with you again as soon as I give them the money.
They are in a lot of pain, and their injuries were a lot more serious than I thought. Naucer could barely talk, and Rosa could barely move.
We have not discussed how I will distribute the money yet. We said that we will talk about it once they get better. My plan is to distribute the donated money as much as they need. Since the seriousness of their injuries is different for each person, the money will be given in different amounts.
They do not know how much they will be charged for the medical cares just yet or how much their insurance will cover, but my goal is to cover 100% of money they need after some are covered by their insurances. And if we have some money left, it will be donated to the owner to restart his business!
Thanks so much for all the donations. They really and deeply appreciate all of you guys.
Hi John! I have the owner's cell number if you need it. Let me know.
Is this going to be supporting the people who were injured? Just curious! This is a wonderful idea.
You are wonderful for doing this! Thank you for letting us all help.
