Money is being raised on behalf of beautiful baby Nyabel and her father Thomas, a parishioner at St. George's Anglican Church in NE Calgary.

Thomas was ecstatic to hear the wonderful news that his wife, Devora, had given birth to their beautiful baby girl in Kampala, Uganda. Tragically, only 4 days after giving birth, Devora passed away from Covid-19; she was only in her early 20's.

This tragic news comes with a terrible financial toll on Thomas, who has had to immediately begin paying a family to foster his new born baby girl. It isn't clear when Thomas will be able to go and get her due to bureaucratic  procedures. Devora's family lives in Kenya and are unable to help with finances. He is responsible for his wife's funeral costs and sadly, all of Thomas' immediate family have also passed away. Thomas will also be responsible for all costs associated for travel back to Uganda, Nybel's visa costs and all the other finances he will face in raising her as a now single parent.  

We are raising funds to help our friend Thomas and his beautiful baby, Nyabel. This is going to be a difficult journey for him and we can't imagine everything he is going through.

If you wish to make a donations CLICK HERE to the GoFundMe page that has been set up to help Thomas and Nyabel or a cheque made out to St. George's Anglican Church with Rector's Discretionary Fund in the memo line can be mailed to the church.

ALL FUNDS WILL BE WILL GOING DIRECTLY TO THOMAS AND NYABEL.

Thank you so much for your generosity and support.
