Thanks to the wonderful support of Aura’s House donors, Paola Aranda and her family of the Home Improvement Project in Mexico have a much nicer and healthier home. After one of Paola’s sponsors visited her last year, it was noted that the roof of the home was allowing rain to enter and there was a serious fly problem in the house. A refrigerator and hygiene products were also needed. Aura’s House donors came to the aid of this little family.
Those who donated at least $10 to this project were automatically entered in our Holiday Raffle.
Eber Danilo (8) lives in Guatemala in a one room home with his parents and two siblings. The family’s home has a concrete floor and a corrugated metal roof.

Eber’s sponsor, Julia, and Aura’s House would like to construct this extra space with help from donors like you. We aimed to raise $1500 for wood, nails, labor, and roofing.
