In the villages of Erajirca and Utcu, 25 families lost their houses because they were located in unsafe areas, next to the river basins. So, when the landslide came, it took everything.
Maité and her family were one of the families who got a land transfer thanks to the quick decision of the inhabitants of Utcu. Now, they are building a safe house in the new plot of land they received, getting technical assistance from DIACONÍA to do so.
While they are recovering their livelihoods and housing little by little, they are coping with cold temperatures at night and lack of income. However, they have not lost the hope in a better future and the solidarity of their neighbors.
