VIDEO: Bad Bunny reveals Puerto Rico's classism, oppression, struggles, blackout and gentrification in El Epagon

During her 66-day hospital stay, Mayah learned that the shooter, Salvador Ramos, who killed 19 students and two teachers, lived just a few blocks away from her home and found it too difficult to return there, according to CNN. (Read More Here).

The 28-year-old megastar and his nonprofit the Good Bunny Foundation, gave a “generous donation” to the Correa Family Foundation, a nonprofit started by former Astros — and current Twins — shortstop Carlos Correa and his family, to assist with the payment.

On Aug. 23, Mayah was honored as the August Hero of the Month at the Houston Astros baseball game and threw out the first pitch. That day, she met Correa, and found out that CFF is funding the abode, as per NBCDFW.

“We have secured the funding to build Mayah and her family a new home in a location where she feels safe and comfortable,” the Correa Family Foundation wrote on Instagram. “We hope this will be an opportunity for Mayah and her family to rebuild their lives, make new memories, and look towards a bright future.”

The plan was announced Tuesday at a Houston Astros game at Minute Maid Park, where Mayah threw the ceremonial first pitch at the invitation of the Correa Family Foundation, started by the former Astros shortstop.

Mayah, wearing an Astros jersey and cap, tossed to home plate as the crowd cheered. Correa, playing in Houston for the first time since he signed in the offseason with the day’s visitors, the Minnesota Twins, said he wanted to make Tuesday special for Mayah.

“After everything she went through, the battle she went through … we want to celebrate life and celebrate her life,” the two-time All-Star told MLB.com.

She was severely wounded in the May 24 massacre at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, in which a gunman killed 19 of her schoolmates and two teachers.

With gunshot wounds to her hands, arms, chest and back, she underwent more than 20 surgeries during a hospital stay of more than two months.

She was the last victim left hospitalized when she was released from San Antonio’s University Health hospital on July 29. She handed roses to nurses and other staff as she left, with people in the hall clapping and chanting, “Mayah! Mayah!” video tweeted by the hospital shows.

On Tuesday, the foundation announced “that thanks to the generosity of numerous donors, CFF has secured the funding to build Mayah and her family a new home in a location where she feels comfortable,” the statement reads.

The home will be fully furnished, the foundation said.

The foundation says it was started to help children with cancer, though it also supports families impacted by other serious hardships, such as tragedies and natural disasters.
