Story

Araial and family desperately need our help. Their family house in Rugby was destroyed. There is ongoing building work next door and the wall collapsed.. Thank God it happened when there is nobody in the house and they are all safe. Two of the kid‘s bedrooms and the kitchen however are completely gone. For health and safety reasons, their house and what is left is inaccessible and will be for a while. They are in temporary accommodation at the moment and they are only able to save the clothes on their backs. The children only have their uniforms and school bags with them. Imagine their shock coming home from school seeing their house in ruins. It all happened around 3:45PM. What can we do to help? First of all, can I ask for your fervent prayers for them at this point. Pray for strength, unity and more faith for the family. I also ask if you have anything to contribute anything they can use NOW and you live nearby, please message Araial or Mel Ilustre via this page. Urgent access to funds is needed. Thank you in advance for your support. For a lot of people, Araial and Mel are close friends and have at some point they have helped many people in need. They are very active in the local parish, in the community and always ready to volunteer for local activities. I always say that one of their greatest traits is to make everyone they come across feel that they are friends and family. I personally know them half of my life and consider them as my extended family. Knowing them, I am certain their faith in God will see them through this crisis in their lives. Let us rally support for them and their family at a time of their greatest need as they would have for many of us. God bless you all and thank you for your generosity.

    As the family takes stock of the tragedy, the loss was immeasurably immense. I have therefore increased the target. Thanks for the support of the local community and those who have donated here however big or small. You are all fabulous, wonderful, kind hearted and generous people. It is still a long road ahead and we like to continue to make an appeal for those who are touched by this story. I attach a recent link to the coverage of BBC. May God bless you, your family and everyone you love.

    The house has been knocked down and it was heartbreaking to watch. Some items were saved but most couldn’t. People say it is like a doll house as you can see a lot of things from the outside. Family is housed temporarily but the loss is just starting to sink in. There is a battle ahead, financially, physically and also mentally. Family is putting a brave face and united in prayer. Thanks for your continued support.
