There are 90 families- 300 men, women, and children that live in these two communities. They need your help! With your support, we will be able to buy and bring out the following items for each family:
· Lime (needed for making tortillas)
We hope those in our global community that have a little bit extra to donate during this time, will consider making a donation of any size to help us keep these families afloat. Every $10-20 helps!
