the garcia's family
is a single mother of two boys – Henry, 7, and Andy, 2. Her husband left her just after Andy was born and doesn’t help her with any expenses for their children. Maritza receives help from her parents and got a job recently working in a San Lucas restaurant earning just under $15 USD a day.
The previous living situation for Maritza's family was not good, as they lived in a shack built with corn stalks, cardboard and dirt floors. The children do not have enough clothes and food is scarce. Maritza shares running water and electricity with her parents that live on the adjoining property.
Thanks to our clients, Maritza now has a solid roof over her head and can focus her energy and money on providing food, education and love to her two boys.
