Three days after a devastating fire swept through their Liberta home, Netiecha Horsford and her fiancé are appealing to the public to help them get their children back in school and a home to call their own.
OBSERVER media reached out to Horsford yesterday who explained that her children are living separately from her.
Horsford said that she and Andre Warner Sr. and their seven children were left with nothing but the clothing on their backs.
“What we really need is a home. Our immediate need is clothing, food, toiletries, shoes, school supplies and uniforms. The children have not been in school since,” she said.
“We are living in different places. I have been getting assistance from a lot of persons, the first response was the Irene B. Williams Secondary School, and from there it has been an outpouring of encouraging words and support.”
In addition to Horsford and Warner, the family of nine comprised of seven females ages
17, 13, 11, 9, and two 8-year-olds and a seven-year-old boy.
Horsford said that the eldest child attends the Antigua State College, A’ Levels Department, while the boy and one of the eight-year-old girls attend the Golden Grove School, the 13-year-old attends the Antigua Girls High School, and the 11, 9 and the other 8-year-old attend the Mary E. Pigotts School.
The fire department is still investigating the blaze and said that it is still too early to determine what may have caused the fire or where it began.
“I had just got in to work for 9 [a.m.] when I got a telephone call saying that my house was on fire,” Horsford said.
“To the best of my knowledge, there was nothing left that could have caused this house fire; the only thing that was plugged in was the television and the refrigerator.”
Anyone who may be willing to assist the stricken family in the rebuilding of their lives can call them directly at 721-5768 or 723-5201.
