Diana, Soribel, Sollangy, Danibel, & Danilsa-these are the five names of girls living in the community of Carrera de Palma with their mother, Sobeida. The four oldest children attend our sponsorship program and have since the beginning, or since they were old enough. Sobeida is a single mom who works hard to provide for her daughters. She recently lost her job and their home. Right now they are living on property that a lady from the community is allowing them to use. The community has rallied around Sobeida and her children to help them the best they can. BUT THEY NEED OUR HELP!
They need basic things like a decent roof that provides shelter during the rain, a bathroom, and walls that are sturdy. The community has done all they can to help this family, and we feel that God has asked us to come alongside them and provide what we can. All of the work will be done by Dominicans which will provide temporary jobs for the men in the community.
In order to help this family, we need to raise $3,300.00. That is just 33 families giving $100. Will you consider giving? Can’t give $100? That’s okay! Give what you can. No amount is too small. Every dollar helps and 100% of your donation will go towards this family and helping to make their home safe for them to live in!
As we celebrate the true meaning of Christmas- that God sent his only son Jesus to dwell among us and ultimately pay the penalty for our sins- let us remember that we are called to bring hope to the hopeless and be a light in the darkness. I can’t think of a better way to do this than to help provide this family with a safe place to live. Remember all gifts are tax-deductible!
