Maria Manuela lives in a community near Cerro de Oro, Guatemala. She was married a few years ago, but her husband is no longer living with the family. Maria has a son that is almost 2, and she is also caring for her 3 year old little brother. They was living in the bamboo house that you see pictured above. This home cannot protect them from the elements and constantly leaks. Now she has a concrete block home, and they are so excited to be safe and secure! Thank you for giving hope to Maria.
