We are originally from Venezuela, a country with the largest proven reserves of crude oil in the world but also with the highest murder's rate in the world. Victims of crime can be anyone; from babies, kids, mums, dads, students, elderly and even police force. Venezuela has become a country which saw 24,000 murders recorded in 2013 and whose capital city was runner-up for murder capital in the world.
All of my Nieces and Nephews from the age of 9 to 18 have witness robbery with their own eyes, threatened with guns directly to them if they don't do or give away what they are asked for.
My sister, Maria Eugenia Lopez, and her husband along with their 3 kids recently were forced to migrate to the USA in an attempt of saving her family of a disgrace that could happen anytime, anywhere, for any reason: They wanted to protect themselves from "casual" murder and give their kids a better future.
In the past year, they have worked incredibly hard in order to get a legal status in the USA. They have paid around $7,000 already in government and attorney fees. They have been granted a temporary labor certificate. However it's not finished yet. They now need to apply for a Permanent Residence otherwise all the previous effort will be lost and they will be forced to exit the country.
We ask your help...they should pay $12,175 USD before the 30th of April this year. That amount covers Attorney fees, Government fees and documents certifications.
PLEASE help me to help them and help their kids to stay safe.
You can help with any amount you can afford, every dollar counts...
With all the gratitude in the world,
Maria Gabriela Lopez
