Help Our Loving Mulu in time of need

Dina Frandsen  OAKLAND, CA

First let me say, I believe in human kindness. I believe in giving back to those in time of need- especially to those who give so much of themselves. And I believe in the power of technology and crowdsourcing. From these three pieces I am hoping that even a dollar from every person who reads this,  can help give back to a family and a mother/sister/caretaker/friend who is in need.

 

Mulu Tesgay has been our girls' loving Nanny since Rylie was 5 months old- she is quite simply part of our family.She is the most wonderful caretaker to Rylie and Ana,among others and is a loving mother to Meron(8), Helen(6) and Daniel(2).

 

Originally from Ethiopia Mulu and her sister Tsega escaped war and genocide, they both settled in California. Along with all of the other people that Mulu loved and took care of, Mulu watched out for her little sister.

 

Tragedy hit this week-  Mulu lost Tsega-  Tuesday , August 1st when she fell victim to domestic abuse.

 

Tsega Tsegay was 33, beautiful and loved her family deeply.

 

Mulu would like to lay Tsega to rest in her native country but lack the funds to do so ($10,000 needed). I want to help them realize this goal.

 

Mulu gives and gives and gives of herself, her time, her love. While she perseveres and makes it through every difficult time, Please help and donate, to Mulu and her family as they mourn their loss and deal with the aftermath of this tragedy. Every dollar makes a difference- can you spare a few-10, 20 ?

 

(All donations will go towards covering final arrangements, including transporting Tsega back to her homeland of Ethiopia).

I wanted to thank everyone who donated. Mulu was able to get Tsega back to Ethiopia. Tsega's mother and father were able to say goodbye as they laid her to rest.

Mulu came back to town and we were able to see her and her kids this weekend. As I read each and every comment that was left and talked to her about the people that reached out tears came pouring out.
Amazing. Thank you to everyone/
