Andrea’s sponsor via Children International is Shana Brown. She writes:
“Andrea Carolina is a sweet little seven year old who lives in Santa Marta, Colombia, with her parents, older brother, younger sister, and little brother.
Andrea likes to sing and she wants to be a model when she grows up. The family struggles to survive on $134 US dollars a month. The father sells vegetables on the street and Andrea’s mom is a homemaker.
When I visited the family in July 2013, I was able to see that the family lives in a one room house and that Andrea’s parents and two brothers share a double bed. Andrea and her sister, Elizabeth, share a single bed which is in very poor condition.
The family would like to have a new bunk bed for the girls, new mattresses, new sheets, and a small wardrobe to keep the children‘s clothes in. I am hoping that this fundraiser will be a success so that the girls can sleep in comfortable beds and have a place to keep their clothes. The breakdown for the project is as follows:
1 wooden bunk bed $245
2 single mattresses $163
2 sets of bed sheets $ 53
1 wardrobe $136
Transportation $ 8
If you are able to help me out with this fundraiser, the family will be so appreciative. This is a very sweet family that needs a helping hand to help make their lives a little better. Thank you and God bless!”
