Vera's Funeral

$19,955 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 440 people in 46 months
Vera  Figueroa was murdered last week while working as a houskeeper in a family's home. This is a link to The news report. 

My name is Nelitza Guttierrez and I was Vera's long time friend, and had worked with her as well.
She was a lovely woman; hard working, happy and adored by everyone who met her.  She’d come to the United States from El Salvador to earn money before planning to retire next year.  She has left behind hHer husband and  two children who live in El Salvador.  

We need your help raising money to make it posible to send her back home where her family  would  be very grateful to give her a proper farewell.  The money Will be used to send her body by plane to El Salvador, for  her viewing ( in Maryland as well as in El Salvador)  and her burial. Please help  send Vera to El Salvador where she can rest for eternity.

More details of where the  viewing  will be held will be posted as soon as her body is released.

I am so sorry for your loss. Senseless violence, or any for that matter, cannot be explained. Please look into the workers compensation laws in DC. A domestic worker qualifies for workers comp if he/she worked over 240 hours in a 3 month period. I know this is a very difficult thing to review at this point but they provide funeral costs and compensation. Sorry, I do not have any legal background in DC but I want to make sure you obtain benefits you are due so it allows you to go the grieving process without unnecessary outside worries. Again, I am so sorry...

I am praying for both families involved in this senseless and horrendous act. I know that no mortal can provide the peace that you all need during this difficult time. I cannot stop thinking about this. I pray for comfort and peace for all the victims and their families. God Bless You.

I hope that the worker's comp link that other person gave works out so there's some money left over to give to the family afterwards.
