The Aguilar family has always lived in extreme poverty. As their only source of income has been the $250 per month earned from the father’s work as a security guard, there has been little hope for improving the physical conditions of their home. They were living in a one-room shack with dirt floors and tin walls, located in a very dangerous area, for as long as they can remember. The family has always dreamed of living in a dignified home of their own. With their little savings and tiny monthly payments over the course of 12 years, they purchased a small piece of land in an area that is far from gang violence.
Thanks to the generous contributions of some of our friends at A Night of RED in 2018, we have been able to build them a house, bathroom, shower, cooking area and large basin for washing. Their lives have been completely changed and they have hope for a life beyond extreme poverty.
