Caterina

Thank you for answering Caterina's call for help

Caterina doesn’t have much, but she works hard to give her three children the best possible life under their circumstances. Her son has a serious medical condition, so her life involves a a lot of doctor appointments.

At the same time, she is diligent about her own mental health – she knows she cannot provide for her kids if she slides back into depression.

She was making it all work until she tested positive for COVID-19. Suddently, she could not go out for groceries or even pick up her or her son’s medication. People around her feared getting sick. “Nobody is helping me, how am I going to do it?” she worried.

But thanks to you, she didn’t have to worry long. Your support meant there was help for her and it came right to her front door! Your Family Crisis Fund donations provided the food, water and medicine Caterina and her children desperately needed and delivered them right to Caterina’s front door.

But your support didn’t stop there. Caterina’s case manager contacted the local school district and arranged to pick up school lunches for the children and deliver them to Caterina. The school immediately provided two boxes full of lunches and said to return each week so the family would have enough food to last them through the crisis.

“Gracias a ustedes por todo lo que hicieron por mi, no sabes cuanto lo agradezco,” says Caterina. “Thank you for all the things you’ve done for me, you don’t know how much I appreciate it.”

You can help a family like Caterina’s through the coronavirus crisis.
