"To every child--I dream of a world where you can laugh, dance, sing, learn, live in peace and be happy."
- Malala Yousafzai
Kirzteen (12 years old) and Keilah (9 years old) are victims of a tragic fire that happened last April 19, 2019 here in Puerto Princesa, Palawan. Their mother, Myrna Tesico (solo parent) suffered 90% burns. She was rushed to the hospital, but sadly, took her last breath there.
Conversation of Kate and Keilah:
Kate:Sino ba ang fave superhero mo?
Keilah: Si mama, kasi niligtas niya kami kahit nahihirapan na siya kahit nasasaktan siya at nasusunog yung katawan niya pinipilit niya na makalabas kami para maligtas niya kami.
(Kirzteen and Keilah, who were very close to their mother still do not know that she did not make it.)
Nobody, especially children, should experience tragedies like this.
Kirzteen and Keilah are now in the hospital severely injured and suffering from 2nd and 3rd-degree burns (35% and 75%) and they will be needing therapy once they have recovered physically. Older brother Joseph, (who is only in his early twenties) and Patrick were out when the fire broke out. Sister Kate (now living with her own family) is also devastated and is at their side every day, taking care of all the paperwork and requirements for bills, contributions, pledges, and donations.
We are putting up this page in behalf of Myrna Tesico's children Joseph, Kate, Patrick, for their sisters Kirzteen and Keila. They will be needing financial support more after recovery. Clothes, books, toys, appliances, (They lost everything.) tuition, therapy. With your help, maybe we could also put up a small business (sari-sari store maybe)for them.
Please help us raise funds for them. Let us take care of them, pamper them, help them recover and rebuild. No amount is too small, every peso will go a long way. Proceeds here will go straight to Kate Tesico's PayPal account.
