Started on Thurusday, it's Saturday and only 2 left!
This is a fund raiser for Araceli and her family. If you decide to get a Set, PLEASE let me know which one you want in the comment box at checkout. As they sell I will pull the picture. We are ready to continue this project, we just ran out of funding.
The Story: Our team in Nicaragua called "A Heart to Love" passed a girl on the road in a wheel chair. They delivered their bags of food in Siuna many hours away traveling through the mountains of Nicaragua. On their way back they went through La Dalia again and there she was. The girl in the wheel chair by the road. They stopped to meet the family. They sent me pictures and told me what they found.
The family was in great need.
Here is where Araselis bathed.
Here is the family latrine.
But Araselis can't get to it so she goes on the floor and when her mom comes home she cleans up after her.
Her younger brother cooks for her and her little bother. The father fled his family. We gave them a bag of provision. These are the places we want to touch and help.
We bought them provisions.
And invested in Vicenta's micro-business
We provided clothing and shoes and 2 beds but the land was not theirs and last year the owner wanted them out. So we just bought them a small structure that will be theirs for all time.
The legal tittle.
Present needs that these flutes will meet:
Firemen inspection $100
Connection electricity to the electric company $250
Installation of water, PVC pipes, wash tub and shower. $ 586
