There’s been a huge emergency in the community. Garinet is crying for your support at this very moment.

Carlos Lenin Sabio, a prominent student at University of San Diago and son of Dr. Sabio, was shot in the head en route to Honduras on New Year's Day.

Currently, Lenin is on a life support system and we are in an effort to raise $21,500.00 USD for the transportation of Carlos Lenin Sabio in an Air Ambulance to Honduras where his Mother and Father can see him. The system will be disconnected there and he will be laid to rest.

Any little bit will help, even $1.

We are just trying to reach out to all the people who we know. We apologize for having to ask you for this in this manner. But please, it is Sulma’s wish, it was Lenin’s wish never to pass in the US. He always spoke of returning to Honduras after completing his studies. Lenin was on a full scholarship to finish up his master's degree in Agricultural Engineering here in the US. He was visiting from California where he is completing his studies. He just wanted to spend New Year's Day with his sister here in Brooklyn. After which he was flying to Honduras to spend time with his parents. He did not want to tell his parents when he would be arriving. He wanted to surprise them.
