This is an emergency appeal for assistance made jointly by Fundacion Pro-Integracion (The Handicap Foundation) and the Junta Communal of Los Naranjas. A family of 17 has lost everything in a fire and needs the community's assistance.

Ana Elizabeth suffers from Cerebral Palsy and is a member of the Handicap Foundation. It is reported she suffered some burns on her hands.

Here are photos of Angel and part of Ana Elizabeth's family.

I'm guessing this was the tragic fire that occurred on Sunday around 1 pm.  The smoke was visible from quite a distance.
