Letter From the Family: 

My name is Rosa Bracho Lopez, I am 27 years old and I am a single mother for my daughter of 1 year. I was living with my child's father but we had problems and he abandoned us. He didn't want me to put his last name for our first child and I haven't heard of him since he left. 

I need a house from you all because I started to pay for a piece of land. With the salary that I don't have enough to build something. Little by little, and with the help of others, I was able to raise up a small room made of pieces of wood. The room doesn't have a floor and I use it for my kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom. It has no windows and the roof is made of wood; we have nothing to protect against the rain. And since where I live there isn't running water, we buy water from the water truck. 

I would love if you could help build us a house so my kids can have a place to grow up in. I hope you take into account my situation and can come and visit us soon, my doors will always be open. Thank you so  much for helping people like myself who also don't have the resources to build themselves something. 

Sincerely, Rosa and Melany Bracho
