House 3 - Leviticus

Altagrassa and Alexander

House 3 was for Alexander and Altagrassa and their children. This couple has three young boys and a girl (Leodin - 10, Louis Manuel - 6, Buckie - 5, and Erica - 13). We worked with the local pastor to identify this family. Last April 2015 when we were in San Critobel we met with the family and were able to view thier living conditions. They were living in one small home which they were sharing with another family. As you can see from the pictures the home was very unsafe and had many problems with the roof. Since April we were able to raise enough donations to provide this family a new home. The home construction started early October 2015 and we had a team of 13 people who went down to San Cristobal late October to finish the construction of this home. We are happy to report the family moved into their new home October 19th 2015.
