Nantale's New Home

Nantale is no stranger to the pain of losing loved ones. Her dear husband died this past year, and one of her sons died 3 years ago.  She began raising her six grandchildren when her son died because the children had no one to care for them.  She loves these children very much, and our Ugandan team is very impressed with how kind these children are.   Unfortunately, Nantale's home began leaking and collapsing several months ago, but thanks to your generosity, this family has a new brick home and latrine!  You'll find photos below with the home prior to the door and window installation.  We're so grateful for your support of the mission of Homes for Homes and for the tremendous hope that's been given to this precious family.

Welcome Home Torres Lara Family!

Efrain and Juanita live in Juarez, Mexico and are both struggling with health issues.  Part of the problem was their current living situation.  Their existing home is pictured above, made of scraps of wood and tarps with a dirt floor.  The roof leaks constantly, and they cannot stay dry and safe from the elements.  We knew that a solid roof and a concrete floor would drastically improve quality of life for the Torres Lara family, and we were honored to provide them a new home.  They were so thankful for your generosity!

Six years ago Abigail became a single mother because her husband abandoned her and her family. She works as a driver, earning about $67 a week, her children attend school. They live in the 'Jose Sulaimon' community in Juarez, Mexico and are so very thankful to receive their new home.
