Help for Ferna's family


Greengoes, there is an older thread titled "Mi amigo Fernando" - I'd link it here but don't know how.

2/3 of the way through that thread is mention of a GoFundMe account that had been established to assist Ferna's daughters. I've communicated with one of the daughters and she relates that the money raised was indeed accessible to the family. Unfortunately more pressing issues than plumbing necessitated action first. The plumbing issues remain (as of two weeks ago).

Ken Cooke and I have been trying to come up with something to help the daughters - something like the plumbing repair. It is a sad situation at their home. The daughter and I exchanged messages in which she explained it, but I don't have her permission to repeat what she said - suffice it to say they are having a difficult time, complicated by little working plumbing.

In the thread I referred to earlier, a Nomad I do not know, "SD" offered to pay for plumbing material if a plumber could be obtained to do the work. I am not in position to attempt to locate a reliable and competent plumber in Tijuana. "SD"'s offer was on 10/15/2016 and I have not attempted to contact him since simply buying material is only half of the solution.

Doug Means (Super Administrator) & moderator, is aware of the family issues and dynamics and has visited the home several times. He has been helpful but at this point, both the efforts of Ken Cooke and Doug (the two apparently most prepared to help) has stalled a bit.

My wife and I are also prepared to help pay the labor involved in the plumbing repairs as long as the effort is credible.

Boy, we need someone in TJ to help with this is what it sounds like to me.

Are they trying to sell the house or it is just in need of urgent repairs?

Ferna's daughters and family


Blanca, in my exchanges with whom I believe to be the eldest daughter, it appears that they intend to stay as long as it is possible. She was, as I said a couple of weeks ago, trying to find decent employment. Another family member, and I apologize for not recalling more detail, will or has moved in to help the girls.

Ken Cooke and his friend Gabriella are probably the best contact persons. I understand from Ken that Gabriella has local Tijuana contacts.
