Human Defense Initiative is happy to announce we have officially launched our first fundraiser for a single dad in need!
Robert is a newly single father to five children whose family is having to start over from scratch. His wife recently abandoned their family and has left him to care for all five of their children alone. The split was unexpected, as they had just adopted three of their children whom they fostered together for over two years. During the split, the father and children lost all of their belongings. What should be a happy time in their lives has turned into chaos.
Now having been awarded custody, Robert knows he’s the only one the children can count on. Robert works a full-time job and side jobs but is struggling to provide, especially with school arriving. He has secured them a safe home, but it is an empty home.
Due to the adjustment and major expenses of the approaching school year, he needs a little help. His main concern right now is accumulating clothes for the children before they start school this upcoming week since they each only have a few clothing items. They are also in great need of two more beds. Additionally, they need a few household and hygiene items, along with bedding for the children. The boys are 7, 8 and 9 years old, while the girls are 10 and 11 years old.
We reached out to Robert and offered our assistance upon finding out about his story. He does not normally ask for help but knows it is in the best interest of the children. Let’s show him and his kids the love and support they need during this difficult transition into their new lives. We have put together a registry containing clothes for each child and hope we can get some sent in time for school!
UPDATE: This registry is officially completed thanks to our wonderful donors! Please check our donation page HERE for future fundraisers! We want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has donated to or shared Robert's registry! He's so grateful words cannot accurately express his gratitude!
