October 15, 2016 Winter Worries on the Raise

Folks, you may know we have been helping little Eduard Ferro (age 2) and also his family to get basic needs established in their house as they have fallen on hard times. Please continue to pray for Eduard as he has had another neurological episode and is in Children’s Mercy Hospital KCMO again today. MRI being done again today. May God’s will be done. Update Saturday 10/15-2016. There is bleeding detected within the brain. Dr’s are not sure why this is happening or just what to do yet but, the family suggests this is not a good sign. I will keep everyone updated and we will continue to pray the problem is resolved soon and no major brain damage results.

HPLA (Habitaciones Para Latinos Association) has been able to get electricity and water to a house which has been vacant for 6 years. Eduard’s Mother started this project as an investment doing most all the work herself. With what has happened the work had come to a stand-still. Lack of resources forced them to move into the house as paying rent was not an option. Full time work could not continue. Eduard requires 24/7 care and is being feed via a stomach pump. Dad is working as a laborer but work is spotty and each job is short lived. The family has been selling assets to help them with basic needs but few salable assets remain and the demand for what is available is basically non-existent.

HPLA was asked to help and we are in the process of getting gas lines replaced to meet the requirements of Kansas Gas Service and to place a meter. The kitchen floor which had been damaged extensively by water leaks over the years has been removed and reinforced with new lumber. Underlayment will be installed and new floor installed over that as resources for materials become available. A toilet is in place temporarily but no sink or shower is in place in the bathroom yet.  The kitchen has no cabinets or sinks. All electrical issues have been resolved and water line leaks within the house have all been fixed. An electric hot water heater is working providing very necessary hot water. Your help is desperately needed. Please pass the word around and or insure that some person or company that is capable of helping is knowledgeable of our need to help this family. All donations will go to provide the basic physiological needs of this family. Thank you for listening. God Bless You.

Why supporting your grassroots charities is best. You can see immediate results

  • Dear readers, I have one thing weighing very heavy on my heart. I have been helping a Jessica Hernandez who is trying to refurbish an abandoned property in hopes to house herself and three children, (she is a trade school graduate in carpentry) In the process her youngest child Eduardo (age two) has been struck with an incurable disease which has effected his brain, It is incurable but not unmanageable.
    HPLA (Habitaciones Para Latinos Association which I Chair) has dedicated all of its resources to get Electric, Gas & Water to the house. 75% of the interior is unfinished. This is an old house and has been vacant for years. Many of you know exactly what we are facing. I am calling on each of you to please help. You can contact Jessica direct at 779-703-2748 for more exact info. Minutes are hard for her to buy so text will work best. But, please don’t hesitate to talk with her. We have purchased a 60 minute phone card and will figure out a way to buy her more minutes. If you can give us carpenter, electrical, or plumbing help at the house please contact me. We are in the Kansas City Metro on the Kansas side.
    All donations coming into www.habitacionesparalations.org will go to this project to buy much needed materials until this house is habitable. Eddie is on a feeding tube now and maybe for some time. If you want to contribute money please make checks payable to Jessica Hernandez and mail to our address 6354 Stevenson Street Shawnee, Kansas 66218. Please give us a heads up that a donation is coming so we can be sure it arrives and we will acknowledge receipt. All donations to HPLA via this website are tax deductible and we will send you a receipt. God Blesses his people via his followers who are the feet to all our prayers. Please pray for this family. Sincerely, Bob Flores HPLA Chairman.
