Ahuachapan 2, El Salvador
Cecilia Patricia lives in Ahuachapan, El Salvador with her three children. Her daughter Carla (12) is in fifth grade and her two sons, Jorge (14) and Carlos (8) are in sixth and second grade, respectively. Cecilia works selling fruit to provide for her family.
Their living situation is unstable and especially dangerous when it's rainy or too hot. When it rains it leaks, making their dirt floors muddy making it more likely that Cecilia and her children will get sick. The heat also makes it unbearably hot inside due to their metal and tarp walls intensifying the conditions.
When asked what a new home would mean to her, Cecilia replies, "To be able to have a good home for my children is my life's dream. I'm a single mother and I fight for my children every day. I want them to live well and not suffer like I've suffered." With your help, let's help make Cecilia's dream a reality!
