Fundacion Help for the Andes still seeks financing for the construction of our first houses in the Cerro La Pradera (Valparaiso/Vina del Mar). We do not have the necessary resources to start this project.
The problem is that these families do not have a decent roof and house. They can not enjoy a better quality of life or can not live a long and healthy life. These families are more vulnerable and prone to diseases. We need to help them build a better life. A safe place to live that can make a real difference in the life of a family. Substandard housing poses a risk to health of babies, children, women and famiies.
Where you live impacts your life. Housing is health. This is why we bulid.
We hope to build the first house but we have not reach our financial goals yet. We need more donations and generous donors, companies or philanthropists who seek to promote the welfare of those in need.
We are hoping for a miracle!! Help us make a difference in the lives of these families. Decent housing conditions will change everything for a family and children living in poverty. It is our dream that we together lift them out of poverty.
If you would like to help us build the first house and change lives for generations to come, please donate today.
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.
