A home for Lita and Jun

JunJun and Lita have a dream--to own their own home that they can grow old in together.  Jun is a welder and designer of Philippine "tricycles" (motorcycle taxis with a sidecar for passengers). Jun and Lita are both disabled. Jun had one leg crushed when he was hit by a truck as a small boy. He still has the use of one leg, and a strong upper body he uses with skill to tackle just about anything. Lita lost the use of both her legs after having an immunization as an infant that went wrong.  As a teenager, she courageously endured multiple surgeries to straighten her twisted legs. She was able to use crutches briefly, but has had to use a wheelchair since. Lita and Jun saved their money for years in order to have a proper wedding in 2016. They currently live in a tiny space Jun's employer has given them, but the shop he works in is scheduled to close soon. Lita says, "We just want a place we can grow old in, because it's so hard to move from place to place. With a place of our own, Jun could set up his own shop." $6000 will buy them a simple house and lot in Puerto Princesa City, Palawan. Could you help get them into a home for Christmas?
