Help us lessen financial strain on the family. As the siblings rallied to support each other, we too can make it easier for all of them.


A family, returning from a funeral in Dunedin were on their way to Picton to catch a ferry to Auckland. They were involved in a tragic accident, lost 7 family members and a baby.

Two family members are in the intensive care in Wellington.

CESS CLARIMAN, daughter of Desiree Lagud Brown and her sister Joanna are now carers of the two survivors: Pedro & Lui. Lui being with SPINAL INJURY and Pedro still suffering from traumatic flashes and is still nursing an injury. The long Rehabilitation process is taking a financial toll on the siblings, as their mother & step dad were no longer available to support them.
