Julissa is a single mother living in Juarez, Mexico. She attends school part-time while also working as a merchant, earning about $44 per week. Julissa is trying to make a better life for her children, and this new home will help her tremendously! They were living in a home pieced together from pallets and cardboard. Julissa asked that we share the following message with you: “Thank you to all the people that are making it possible for my family to receive this blessing!" We are so grateful for the opportunity to help Julissa and to provide income to the workers that built the home.
Getulida is a widow that lives in a small village in Uganda with her family. She's the mother of ten children, but unfortunately disease has taken three of them away from her. When her son Baisi died in 2009, Getulida stepped up and began raising his three children that were left abandoned and alone. It meant more mouths to feed, and more responsiblity, but also more love and joy. Getulida stepped up for her family when they needed her the most, and now they have received the gift of a beautiful new home with a latrine! Thanks for giving them this tremendous gift.
The Mesa Castro family lives in Juarez, Mexico and they are so excited to receive a new home! Maria works as a cook, selling hamburgers from a food cart to meet the family's basic needs. She makes less than $200 per month, They were living in a shack, but now, they have a stucco home with a solid roof and a concrete floor! Maria asked that we tell you, "I thank you so much with all my heart that you are helping my family with a real home for us to live in!"
You can see below the workers that built the home and earned wages to provide for their family. What a precious site to see the workers taking the time to build a house with the kids as well! They're dreaming too, and you can't imagine the difference this home will make in their lives. Thanks again for supporting this family!
Andres and Gabby were living with their two children in a small shack made of plywood. Because the roof constantly leaked, both the kids developed respitory infections and were hospitalized. Thankfully, the pastors in Juarez approved them for an immediate home which was funded by your gift!
We met them last week while visiting the community, and they had just moved into the home. Gabby was a humble, kind lady that was moved to tears over the gift of this home. Jose played quietly in the room and Alejandra captivated us! Andres was off working at his construction job to help provide for the family. They asked that we tell you, "Thank you for this tremendous gift! It is going to be a great help for our children."
