Miriam is 40 years old and came to the island 21 years ago.. Her mother abandoned her and her 5 siblings when she was just a little girl. When she was 12 years old, she moved to her uncle´s house, but life didn´t improve. One day her uncle tried to rape her, so she decided to leave. She thought she would be safe with her brother, but was tragically raped by him. Not knowing what to do, she decided to move to Roatan. It was there she met her husband. Sadly, her husband began drinking and using drugs. The situation got worse and he started beating her. It took several years, but Miriam eventually left him. Currently, she is working at a hotel in the pantry area. Her monthly salary is about $300.
Miriam has three children: Edwin, Miriam's son, is 12 years old, and is in the 6th grade. Bryan, is 9, and in the 4th grade. Estrella, her oldest daughter, is 21 years old. Estrella has three children: Jose Angel, (6), Christopher, (4) and Diana Esther should be born any day.
Miriam says that, ¨One of my biggest worries is that one day I will be gone knowing that I couldn’t provide a home for my children.¨
Let´s make a difference in their lives. Help us raise the funds to add some comforts to their new home. The money raised will be used to get new pots, pans, dishes, new beds for the children, and other items that make a house a home.
Your prayers and financial support will truly be a blessing to this family in need. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
