Bad Bunny is taking major strides to assist a survivor of the mass casualty incident that took place at Robb Elementary School in Uvdale, Texas in May. Earlier this month, Bad Bunny invited 10-year-old Mayah Zamora to his show at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The Puerto Rican star invited Zamora and her family backstage and took pictures with her. However, their friendship did not end there. ABC affiliate, WFAA, has reported that the artist’s Good Bunny Foundation, along with several other nonprofits, pitched in to build Zamora and her family a new house.
“After everything, she went through, the battle she went through, and now she’s here with us. We want to celebrate life and celebrate her life. She’s here with us and we’re here to support her all the way through,” MLB star Carlos Correa, who also donated to help build the home, said.
“It’s not just by helping with the house, but helping with whatever they need.”
Mayah Zamora is one of many victims of the shooting that took place at a local elementary school in Texas. On May 24, 2022, 18-year-old Salvador Ramos fatally shot 19 students and two teachers while injuring 17 others. Tragically, Zamora was one of the 17 people injured after sustaining gunshot wounds to her hands, arms, chest and back. To address her injuries, she had to undergo 20 surgeries. While recovering from her injuries, Zamora learned that Ramos lived near her home in Texas. In response, she felt unsafe returning home, prompting the mission to build her family a new home. Alongside Correa and Bad Bunny, Houston Dynamo FC, Houston Astros and several other organizations pitched in to build the home.
