Giveback Homes Member Cara King, based in Louisville, KY, organized a fashion-focused fundraiser in April that raised over $6,000 for Giveback Homes! Guests were treated to an evening of cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, music and fashion highlighting the latest Derby and Spring styles provided by Circe and Rodes.

The funds from this event were able to build a new home for a family in need in Esteli, Nicaragua.

 

Meet Urania Mejia  

Urania lives with her husband Edgard and their two sons, Samuel (21) and Edgard Isaac (16). Urania is 49 years old and stays home to take care of her boys while also making and selling crafts like piñatas and weaved baskets. Her husband Edgard (48) works as an electrician and together they earn about $260/month.

 

Their youngest son Edgard is in his third year of secondary school. Urania is proud that both her sons have been able to study, and explains that education is an extremely important value for them. Urania herself was able to finish secondary school and began university but could not afford to finish. Urania is currently suffering from a lesion on her spine and has been going to the hospital to address the issue, while Edgard suffers from diabetes. The family does not have medical insurance, so their medical bills have always been very expensive for them.

 

This new home will allow them to focus on their health and provide for their family. We’re grateful to Cara king for making this possible!
