Abraham Helps With His Mother’s Store – Honduras

Children International has purchased items from Aura’s House donations to sell in Abraham’s mother’s store that would increase the family’s income and help her to provide for her seven children. Abraham (8) looks so happy and healthy in the photos sent from Honduras of him and his mother with fully stocked shelves. Abraham’s mother’s only income comes from operating this small store out of her home, selling a few basic items to support her big family. The greater income generation will help the family by providing them the means to purchas vitamins, supplements and food for Abraham. These necessities will improve his health by helping him to battle malnutrition.

Complete: Medical and Income Generation Project for Abraham of Honduras. $870 Raised! Thank you!

Abraham is facing severe malnutrition due to his family’s lack of income. His family was abandoned by his father and his mother earns a small monthly income from a struggling store to support her seven children. Unfortunately, her income has recently dropped to only $105 a month. She can’t go to find work elsewhere because she has to stay home to care for her special needs daughter. Running a store from home is really her only option.

It would greatly help the family if they were provided with vitamins, supplements and food for Abraham to improve in his health and with a donation to purchase items to sell in the store that would increase the family’s income and help Abraham’s mother to provide for her seven children.

Complete: School Supplies and Income Generation Project for Daniela (8) of The Philippines: $574 Raised! Thank you!

Daniela lives with her parents and three siblings in one multi-use room in the poorest areas of Manila, the Philippines. Their home has a corrugated metal roof and they use water from a neighbor’s faucet. The family’s income has recently dropped to a mere $70 per month. Children International has informed Aura’s House that the family has the capability to generate income through sewing and a small store.

In addition to the income generation, Daniela needs school clothing and supplies for the upcoming school semester. Aura’s House plans to enable Daniela’s family to generate income and to provide Daniela with the school supplies that she needs. We aim to raise $560 for a sewing machine, groceries, items for the small store, uniform, shoes, socks, school supplies and text books.
