Help us build our first house for Ingrid's family with 2 children and an elderly. They currently live in an unsafe house with alarming conditions. We have not yet gather the needed funds to build their new house.
Homes here in the Camp are constructed from remaning wood, roofs are fabricated with left scrapped metal sheets and due to the wheather condition they do not have protection from the cold wheather. They are never protected from the rain.
Chile has one of the largest proportion of older adults in South America and a lot of proportion of these people live in poverty. The poorest families in Chile live in these Campamentos/Camps.
This is a special opportunity for you to make a diference in the lives of this family and provide them with care and hope for a better future.
Please help us to build safe and secure houses for those that are in desperate need.
Thank you so much donors for helping us to serve these vulnerable families of the community La Pradera. You are part of something very special.
Poverty still affects the lives of these families. TOGETHER we can build safe homes and provide decent housing.
We are hoping for your support to improve their standard of living. Please see the photos and video of Ingrid's home. The first house we want to build is for Ingrid's children and their grandmother who were left together after Ingrid (mother of these kids) recently died of cancer.
The need of housing in third world countries is prone to misfortune but together we can change this.
During this period of Covid 19 pandemic's devastating impact, housing instability and food insecurity has gone up in this community. Many families lost their income and their children are more likely to have poor health.
Some people continues to get infected with the virus.. and unfortunately we have not been able to get enough donations. Construction has not started yet as we need enough funds to build the first house.
We are looking forward to making this housing a reality. This is a beautiful project!
Thank you so much for those that gave the first donations to this cause and all that will donate in the future.
In spite of everything, you can see the mothers gathered together for a meal, a simple menu shared for those in need.
Women in the community of Cerro La pradera have been more vulnerable to job loss during the Pandemic.
Here in the community we have 140 famlies at present and 75% of the adults of these famlilies are without a job.
The consequences of quarantine have left many famliies here still without a decent roof and house, living in poor settlements. Older adults are really suffering because of this.
It is our hope that you will help us to provide a solution with your donation for the supplies, equipment needed to build their houses for these group of economically disadvanted individuals and families.
