Family Defense Resources
Many people who read our stories on Medical Kidnap ask us how they can help these families. Online donation services often take a huge percentage of the amounts donated.
Sophia Media LLC, the parent company of Health Impact News and MedicalKidnap.com, has set up a special fund to help families featured in our stories. All funds donated will go towards the family’s needs, and Sophia Media does not keep any service or administration fees at this time.
The needs will vary with each family and situation. Sometimes the parents have needs because they are forced to give up their jobs to fight to get their children back, which is a full time job. In many cases funds are needed to hire a good attorney who is not appointed by the court.
We are currently accepting donations for the following families/cases:
Haly’s Defense Fund
Help Bring Haly’s Children Home
The latest update on Haly’s family can be read here. The original story is here. Haly’s children are in foster care, taken from her after the older two were born to a mother in foster care. The parental rights have already been terminated for the older two, before the youngest was born. Haly and her husband Anthony still have a chance to get their youngest baby back, but they need finances for an attorney.
All donated funds will go to the legal team directly.
Rembis Family Defense
The latest update on the Rembis family can be read here. The original story is here. As of 10/30/2016 they are back in Texas where CPS has put their children into foster care, where some of the children have alleged abuse. The parents may be evicted from their home. So they have both personal and legal needs.
Help Bring Malakai Home
The latest update on Malakai can be read here. The original story is here. The family’s last hope to get Malakai to safety lies in a new attorney who believes that he can get him back home. He is planning to file an appeal. They have less than 60 days to come up with the down payment on the retainer fee for the private attorney, which is $3000. If they cannot do this by January 6, they don’t see any other hope of getting Malakai back to his family. Grandmother Kimberly Deese lives on a fixed income, and the family does not have the financial means to fight for Malakai without help.
More funds to help more families coming soon!
