Lesly’s family’s monthly income is $156, earned by her father who is a laborer. Their roof has holes so some of the tin sheets need to be replaced. When it rains the water pours in. They also need to pour a concrete slab in the courtyard because the rain turns it to mud and it doesn’t dry out due to the humidity and this affects the family’s health.
