EVENT DATE Dec 18, 2015

THE STORY:

Lucas and Dilcia have 3 young children. Oscar, who is 8 years old, Stacy who is 6 and Kaylee who is 3.

Lucas begins his day gathering fruit, getting it loaded in sacks and attached to his bike for the mile long ride into town. After reaching the town center, he walks the streets selling his fruit, house to house, store to store, to anyone he can find. Even with a full day of selling fruit, he only brings home $6 dollars a day on average and this is barely enough to keep his family fed.

There’s a lot of needs and the greatest need right now is the need for shelter. They really need a house. They’re living in a house now that’s made out of scrap sheet metal. It’s just a small shack on the outskirts of town. It’s dirt floors turn to mud when the rain comes in through the holes in the roof. The smoke builds up on the inside as supper cooks on the handmade, wood stove. And there’s just one light to help the family see at night, just enough to get by.

He’s working. He’s doing his best but with the money he’s making it would take them years in order to save up the money to build a house. Sometimes they’re scared in the winter time when the rain comes because they don’t know if their poor house is going to fall in because of the pressure of the rain. During the summer they hang their clothes out on the line to dry but in the winter, the rains come and they have to try and dry them inside the house. But when it also rains inside the house, there’s no way to get the clothes dry and they become moldy.

The family bathroom is just a plastic tarp hung around a banana tree for a little privacy and a small stream nearby to help carry away the waste.

A new house would not only provide separate sleeping quarters and a concrete floor, it will also include a separate concrete pad for a real toilet with metal siding and a roof. Please help us build a home for this family! Thank you so much!
