When a storm rages outside, 8-year-old Flor and her three siblings cling to their mother, Lucia, inside their ramshackle home in rural Honduras, frightened of what might happen next.
The children scream, “Mama, we’re going to die,” afraid their rickety shelter will break apart.
Their feeble shack offers little protection against the rain and wind. Parts of the stick walls are layered with tarp remnants, but they do little to shield the family. When it rains, water blows through the house with every gust of wind.
You can help provide safe shelter for desperate families, like Flor’s. When you give today, your gift will go even further. Thanks to a matching-gift challenge from a group of generous friends, every gift for housing will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $500,000.
Please be as generous as you can to help provide Lucia, and other mothers like her, a safe home to raise their children.
