Complete: Household Needs Project for Dora (8) of Guatemala. $580 Raised! Thank You.

Dora lives with her parents and four brothers and sisters in a small home built of mud walls, corrugated metal roofing, and a dirt floor. Her father, Rufino, works as a daily laborer, earning about $91 per month. Dora and her family would benefit greatly from household items to make their home more liveable.

We aim to raise $500 to purchase the following gifts: a double bed, a wardrobe, clothing, shoes, food, and cleaning supplies. All projects on the Aura’s House site are 100% US tax deductible.
