Letter from the Family: 

Hello, my name is Margarita and I'm a single mom with three kids. I was living with my brother and we had plans to move to our land but my brother ended up renting out the house we were living in because he needed the money. Where we are living now, on our land, doesn't have water, our floor is just dirt and our room is made of old wood and tarps. I wanted to have something better for my family but there wasn't enough time with only making $40 (dollars) a week and paying for school and groceries.

My two girls stay the night with different friends 2 or 3 nights a week so that they are safe because I worry about their safety and the living conditions. I don't want them to get sick. We could really use your help and we are so thankful that there are people like you in the world that help others in their times of need. We look forward to meeting you. God Bless.
