Dear Friends & Contributors:
NOTE: This was a recent email sent to our "Friends and Contributors" accompanied by a short slide show. I will reproduce it below with the photographs inserted. We have already sent to Guatemala funds to begin working on this need, and need your continued support to complete this project, and for other unending Emergency Aid projects.
At the end of the YouTube video bringing the "Julie Memorial Project" to a conclusion we briefly showed a glimpse of an urgent project. You might have missed it, so I'll insert a brief slideshow on the need.
Swinging around the Valparaiso School is the Cahobon River.
Just a few hundred yards upstream is a home on the verge of slipping off into the river.
Our Director, Federico Veliz, got urgent help from government agency to build a rock barrier to save the home.
This is the front of a typically poor home. There a tragedy has been unfolding we have been helping with since we began our efforts to save the home.
Inside is a good woman with terminal cancer for whom we are providing pain medications for her final days, but her deep seated desire is that her home can be saved for her children who will soon be orphans.
We are already working on raising the barrier, and need about $1,500 more for the Emergency Aid to raise the barrier enough to assure saving the home.
Please help us with this urgent need and for other such needs requested continually in this area where there are no other humanitarian aid programs available.
