Complete: Household Needs Project for Andrea (7) of Colombia: $705 Raised. THANK YOU!

Andrea (right) and her family live in a one room dwelling and struggle to survive on $134 USD a month. The family has two beds that are used for six people and are in very poor condition.

We aim to raise $605 to purchase new bunk beds and bedding as well as a wardrobe that will help give the family a safe and clean place to store their clothing.

Francisco and Evelyn Room Construction Completed! – Colombia

The Room Construction Project for Evelyn and Francisco of Columbia is complete.

Children International has sent the final report with the photos in the gallery below of the ramshackle room replacement for Evelyn and Francisco’s family in Cartagena, Colombia. As a reminder, the family was living in nothing more than a shack made up of odd pieces of wood, plastic, cardboard and even pieces of cotton sheets. They were sharing the facilities with up to seventeen family members. Thanks to your generosity they now have a safe, secure and comfortable place to live with three windows for fresh air, doors for privacy and beds in which to sleep rather than the old mix of mattresses and wood. The family is truly grateful as you can see in the before and after photo galleries below and the kind words from Francisco’s aunt.
