Juana's new home construction has begun!

Thanks to some generous donors and our key chain sales, our first and most economically disadvantaged FFF client will soon be in her new home. The home ownership was expedited by the fact that Juana already owned the land, and we didn't have to fund the purchase of this. Although very modest by U.S. standards, this house will be the first home this client and her disabled daughter have ever owned with a concrete floor, a water filter, a roof that doesn't leak during the rainy season, and bathroom. Their current home is pictured below. We hope to be able to fund a water source to the house so that the nearby river, which is badly polluted, no longer needs to serve as the drinking water for this family.
