The Gonzalez Pichiya Family


They used to live in a shack built with corrugated metal sheets, and cornstalk with a dirt floor, they had one bed. They were in need because they don’t have the resources to build a home independently. Gudiel works as a mason earning approximately $166 per month. When there is no work as a mason he works on a farm earning around $6.75 per day. Sandra works preparing and selling food; she earns around $25 per week. They shared with us that before their new home, they had a leaky roof so when it rains it caused their daughter to have a persistent respiratory problem. And thanks to a CASA client their daughter doesn’t have to deal with respiratory problem.
