24 yr old Yesica Rios was killed by a stray bullet while at work at a bar in Colombia in November 2013.  Her 13 month old baby boy -Kevin and 65 year old mother -Fabiola Vanegas survived her and we are now seeking your help on their behalf.  

Fabiola can't work due to a heart condition and Yesica was the breadwinner of the family.  The baby's father does not work and does not live with them.

My family is looking to fundraise enough money for them to pay their housing and living expenses for at least one year.  This includes money to buy groceries, diapers, milk, warm clothes and pay for rent.

The current landlord offered to let them stay for free at their current residence for a couple of months while Fabiola finds enough money to pay for rent and the other expenses.  They need your help to find the money to buy groceries, diapers, milk, warm clothes and pay for rent.

Thankfully, the baby is healthy and Fabiola's heart condition is under control for now.  Let's give them a hand so they can mourn their loss without worrying about what to eat or where to live in the coming months.

We are organizing this on behalf of Fabiola and all funds collected will be transferred to Fabiola's bank account.  She has given us authorization to set this campaign up on her behalf and we have all necessary bank information to make the transfer right after the end of the campaign.

Thank you for your help!
