Meet the Contreras Martinez Family

Jakelin and Mario live in Ahuachapan, El Salvador with their two young children. Both parents work hard to provide for their new, young family.

The floors of their shelter are a mix of dirt and scrap wood. Metal sheets line the top of the house to provide cover. When it rains it is bad news for their shelter. Holes in the roof allow the water to flood the house and drenches the family. The dirt floors then become mud and life becomes more complicated quickly.

The Contreras Martinez family dreams of a safe home with clean water, where their two children could develop and grow in healthy conditions.

With your help, we can provide them with a weatherproof home with clean running water and electricity, which we firmly believe will bolster their standard of living.
