    Story

    Félix Flores Varona and Heidy Solano are Cubans living in Falkirk, Scotland. Three months ago Heidy was diagnosed with cancer and has been receiving treatment since. Given the advanced stage of her condition, the medical team have now advised that she will not be able to return to Cuba and have encouraged Felix to make arrangements for their two children Glenda (aged 21) and Felito (aged 18) to visit. Felix and Heidy have no recourse to public funds. Felix is only able to work part time because of Heidy’s care needs and will not be able to raise the funds to bring their two children to Scotland and support them during their stay.

    Although we have reached our original target to cover the cost of travel, passports and visas etc, we are continuing to gratefully accept all donations to help fund Glenda and Felito's day to day living expenses during their stay in Scotland and ensure that the family are able to enjoy what time they have together.

Isn't it fantastic that they're able to celebrate it together as a family, making more precious memories.Yesterday was filled with sharing stories and lots and lots of laughter. They have two years of news to catch up on. Today it's a visit to hospital. The days ahead will not be easy but they are together. You have made all of this happen.

      Glenda and Felito arrived in Scotland last night to be with their parents Felix and Heidy. It is difficult to find the words to describe the family's joy at being together. A truly wonderful event that you have all made possible with your generous donations and the many acts of kindness and compassion that helped us get through the red tape and at times what felt like insurmountable barriers. .The days ahead will not be easy but they are together and that is what matters. We will leave the Just Giving page open for any last min donations.

      Glenda and Felito's Visas were issued by the Home Office yesterday afternoon. They're travelling to Scotland this weekend and will arrive on Sunday . Felix and Heidy were overjoyed by the news.This could only happen with your generosity and encouragement. Felix and Heidy sends their love and gratitude to all of you who have helped in so many ways to bring their family together at this difficult time. A special thank you to their local MP John McNally whose office worked hard to ensure that the Visas was issued in time for their flight.

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
