In my last post, I shared with you the story of Leonardo and Maria, and their basically homeless situation as a result of the earthquake this past April. I am grateful for the response of those that have helped us raise $1,850 so far, towards giving them a basic, one room livable space. We have purchased some materials, including rebar, cement and bricks, and Leonardo, along with the help of some friends, has gotten to work on the frame and foundation. This house will be constructed with more support than the previous one they lived in, and will also only be one story high. In the beginning, it will just be one room, but is being built in such a way that they can add on later if they are able.
At this point, we still need roughly $1,200 to purchase the rest of what is needed in order to give them a very basic finished product. Would you please consider helping with this? A little goes a long way here towards providing the materials needed to give this couple a decent roof over their heads. Below is a link to send the funds to my PayPal account, or you can contact me directly if you prefer another giving method.
