Income Generation Project for Jenelyn (4) of the Philippines
Our goal was to raise $750.
$920 raised! THANK YOU!
Special Thanks to: Super-donor Steve Krumholz for his generous $380 donation, The “Love Bombers” from the LiftOne community, and Facebook Causes donors that all came together at the same time to close out this project. The extra funds raised will give Jenelyn and family an extra boost that will help take the sting out of their recent hardships. Thanks to all who donated to this project!
Jenelyn lives with her parents and four siblings in a rented house in the Philippines. The family’s income is a mere $53 a month. (* As of July 16, 2011 we now know it is only $20 a month.) They use water from a neighbor’s faucet and their home has a dirt floor. Aura’s House plans to enable Jenelyn’s family to generate income by selling goods from a push cart. There are also many household needs items Jenelyn’s family requires. We aim to raise $750 for the following items: a mattress, rice, clothing, groceries, a cart with tarp, a washing machine, schooling costs, and 2 months share of the electric bill.
This project was upgraded to “Emergency” on July 16, 2011. Susan H., Jenelyn’s sponsor recently learned that the family’s income drastically went down to only $20 a month. All projects on the Aura’s House site are 100% US tax deductible.

Transportation cost for purchasing goods

Jenelyn is the sponsored child of Susan H. of the USA.
“Jenelyn B. is a 4 year old girl living in The Philippines with her parents and four siblings. She likes to play with dolls and her siblings. She likes to laugh, dance and sing. I can only imagine the pain in her mother’s heart when her children go without basic necessities such as plumbing, enough food or clothing. The family’s home is basically a rented shack. There is one room in the home, with a dirt floor and the bathroom is a nearby field. Despite these conditions, Jenelyn and her family can still see hope in their future. This small project will help the family immensely. It is a wonderful thing to be able to help this family.
Thank you so much for helping this loving family. “
This project is now complete, but please consider helping another family in need by donating to one of our current projects.
I prefer to donate offline.
