Assistance for Andrea and her boys

Main image
  Auckland

My sister Andrea is an amazing, resilient woman, who has dedicated the past 22 years to raising her 3 awesome sons. To do this, Andrea held down two jobs for years to support her family but has been in severe financial hardship in 2020, notably in the past four months with a serious case of carpal tunnel in her right hand and has been unable to work. She recently had surgery on her right hand but the carpal tunnel is now in her left hand so she needs surgery for this hand also. This means she is unable to work for up to 3 months while she has her second surgery and the recovery time.

On New Years Eve, Andrea was dealt yet another blow and given a 90 day notice to terminate her current tenancy, so unless she gets financial assistance, her and her boys potentially could end up homeless.

Our family have financially helped Andrea which has had her manage to just scrape by, but this latest news of a second surgery and tenancy termination has made us realise that this has got bigger than we alone can do, so calling out to our family and friends for added assistance.

My hope is that we can raise enough to cover Andrea’s weekly shortfall of $600 for the next 12 weeks (approx. $7,200) to relieve the financial pressure while she recovers from her surgeries so she can return to work promptly, and also find new accommodation for her and her boys.

We understand that these are tough times for many, and most of you know that we wouldn’t usually ask, so we thank you for your serious consideration to donate to Andrea’s cause.

Hi everyone,

thanks again for all your generous donations. Andrea can now cover her weekly expenses until the end of March. Andrea is deeply grateful to you all.

Andrea is having surgery on her left hand next Wednesday 27th January, which is such great news!

Would really appreciate your prayers for Andrea's housing situation. She has 10 weeks left in her current home and she desperately needs an affordable and suitable home for her and the boys. I am going to keep this page active for a little while so I can post updates and answers to prayers! Love Kim x
