Puerto Morelos Newsletter Update April 6th, 2012 Help needed

Mari at the house they are currently in

To be right up front and honest this blog is a begging letter to help with Maria and her family living in a squat in the Pescadores, part of Puerto Morelos. They have to leave their 'shack' with no sanitation in 10 days!! and we have had to stop work on the new place! Over the last three months we have constructed a basic shell for the new shack for Maria and her five children (see below) , foundations, concrete floor, septic system and roof on land kindly donated by David Sanchez.
NOW we have used up too much of our general fund (close to 50,000 pesos) from the charity so we are asking you please to send what you can so we can finish the walls, bathroom, doors and windows. If you care to, you can DONATE NOW.
The house the charity built, not much room for 5 but for the fist time they have bathroom facitlities, when we finish!

The family seen here with Wally and Theresa Koslowski who, like angels, recently came and took the family on a shopping expedition to Cancun where they bought food and clothes for the whole family. They also bought a new wheel chair for Mari, which she will need to grow into. They also donated the funds needed to buy one set of bunk beds for the children and lots more food. Wally and Theresa thank you thank you from all of us and we hope you see this delightful photo! Click to enlarge.
