Maria is truly grateful for her supporters and reports that the children are doing well. Unfortunately, the restaurant is currently facing some huge challenges.
"For the last ten months we have been struggling with intermittent electricity as it is off from 4-8 hours per day. This is the decision of the government and, as always, the poorest areas suffer the most, having the most blackouts
Having NO electricity affects our ability to cook food since we have been cooking from home and taking it to the construction site. Plus the van has had mechanical problems and also needed to be registered…which, of course, costs money.
Since we couldn't bring hot food, we tried selling ice cream but with the lack of electricity, it melted.
Many businesses in the country have suffered greatly due to this problem with electricity - including Maria’s Restaurant.
With your help, we plan to use our Mobile Kitchen to sell snacks at the Soccer fields on Saturdays. Hopefully, this can carry us through until the electricity problem is resolved. Gas would be an alternative solution if the Cost of Gas hadn’t skyrocketed making it impossible as an alternative.
We truly appreciate your on-going support. Internet is also difficult here,.
Thank you.You are the key to getting us through this dark period.
May God richly bless you all.
