Cancer left a widow and seven children. Please, help us give this mourning family a safe place to call home.
On Victor Campos’s last trip to Mexico, he sent me the following message and photo. “This family needs our help. The father just died a couple of days ago. There are 7 kids and the Mother.”
This family lives in a dilapidated shack (pictured behind them) that only partially protects them from the elements and does not have enough space for everyone. Our hearts break at their situation, especially knowing the rainy season is quickly approaching. Victor Campos recognized the direness of this and knew we needed to help. As soon as funds are secured, our local crew of builders will provide them with a safe, new home, that they can grief as a family and try to rebuild their new life. If you can, please donate and support. As always, we’ll ensure 100% of it goes into their new home.
After an incredibly difficult year, you all gave them a safe place to call home.
This past year, Juana Baez Mendez lost her husband, Jose Carmen to COVID-19. This left her as the sole breadwinner for their two daughters, Karina and Maria. Now, struggling to pay the rent, they are at risk of losing their home. Prior to his death, Jose and Juana worked hard to purchase a small piece of land where they were going to live. Unfortunately, they were never able to afford a house and instead rented a dilapidated shack. Without his additional income, Juana and her two children are at risk of losing everything. In addition, the two daughters are considering stopping school to help provide for the family. But thanks to our amazing donors and selfless volunteers, we were able to give them a safe, new place to call home!
