    This home was funded by Santiago and Kyle Arana. Meet Virgilio and family This 11-member family from Cochabamba lives in two damp, dark rooms. Flies swarm the rooms, and the stench of blood from the leathers they make fills the air. Still, the family treasures the leathers, as the extra income is a significant help in covering the very large family’s basic needs. Parents Virgilio and Patricia built the two modest rooms they and their children call home. The main room was built with adobe (a mix of straw and earth), a simple material that cracks and erodes quickly. The cracks allow wind and insects to plague the rooms, leaving the family prone to cold nights and insect-carrying diseases. When it rains, water leaks into the house, muddying the floor and staining the leathers. Because of their home’s poor environment and shoddy structural conditions, the family rarely has a chance for quality time and rest. Patricia also has Chagas, an insect-inflicted illness that weakens the heart and central nervous system. Left untreated, Chagas is chronic, and can cause heart failure. The damp cracks in the mud walls of Patricia’s home is a perfect habitat for the insect that causes Chagas. Her home is likely to blame for her illness. Virgilio and Patricia dream of a better future for their children, who in turn dream of becoming important contributors to society. The family hopes for a house that is safe and free of diseased insects, which will allow them to enjoy a better life.

    Lilian + Carla live in a high-risk landslide zone. The back wall of their shack is a dirt hill. They’ve applied a thin layer of cement to the wall, but it’s not enough to block the rain from wreaking havoc. And when it rains, all the children huddle into one bed to feel safer as the rain pours over them. A contaminated river runs right below their shack polluting the area around their home. The water attracts swarms of insects, and the mosquitoes are particularly dangerous because they often spread dengue fever and chikungunya (a virus that causes fever and severe joint pain). and don’t know where to go. They dream of a place where the kids will grow and flourish in health and safety. A home where they won’t have to worry daily about flooding, disease-carrying mosquitoes, and landslides.

    Noel dreams of moving into a home. Since the 2010 earthquake destroyed his home 5 years ago, Noel and his family have been living in a thin tarp tent. Life in their tent slum is merely survival. Noel’s tent houses his wife Marchila and their 6 children, including their youngest daughter Guerda (1 years old). These loving parents are melon farmers and work hard “to have the money for our children to go forward in life”, Marchila says. The one-room, mud-floored tent is dirty, crowded, and painfully hot. “It’s impossible to stay inside when the sun is out, we have to take the baby outside until the sun goes down”. Imagine not being able to relax in your own home. When it rains, this family is completely drenched as their tent is tattered and torn. These living conditions combines with lack of sanitation and access to clean water contribute to poor health. A home is more than just a shelter – it promotes improved health, better performance in school, and the ability to take advantage of opportunities.

    Single father, Nathan Bellet had simple dreams for his two small children: health, safety, happiness, and stability. However, years of living in substandard housing made these small hopes feel impossible. When Nathan and the kids crowded into his childhood home with his parents and sister, he was happy to be back in a community he loved. He longed, though, to provide the security his little ones needed. When Nathan first encountered Habitat, his dreams no longer seemed so lofty. Finally, he was able to give his children “a home that they can call their own, because they are the ones that make it all worth it." Now, in place of uncertainty is a solid foundation. This past June, Nathan held the keys to his new Habitat home. Hundreds of sweat equity hours showed in Nathan’s pride and in the strong bonds he’d already formed with his neighbors. His first order of business was to hang his children’s art on his new walls. Your support doesn’t simply install a window or hang drywall. Your support means that Nathan’s family and many others like his are sinking deep roots into communities and flourishing as a result. Thank you for helping us transform lives.
