A Safe Home for Esmeralda in Mexico

February 3rd, 2020

 

Thanks to donations from Giveback Homes Members, Esmeralda and her family now have a safe place to call home. Esmeralda is a single mother to her children Samuel (11) and Deenise (7). The family is doing well and her kids are participating in school. Esmeralda is excited for their new home and no longer has to worry about a leaky roof. "Thank you for the gift of this new home," said Esmeralda. "We needed it so much."

About Esmeralda 

 

Esmeralda and her two kids, Samuel and Deenise, live in a community called “Panfilo Natera” in the city of Juarez, Mexico. Esmeralda has lived in Juarez for more than 30 years, having moved there as a child from the state of Coahuila with her family.

The family currently is living in a one room shack that they have made from scraps of used plywood and old lumber. Esmeralda owns the land where the family’s new home will be built.

Esmeralda works in a factory, assembling wiring harnesses for computers. She earns about $38 per week. Both of her children attend school. Samuel is nine years old and is in the 4th grade and Deenise is five years old and is in the 1st grade. Esmeralda is a single mother. The father of her children is not involved in their lives and offers no support to them.
