Meet the Lopez/Vasquez Family!

A letter from the family:

Hello. My name is Eulogia López, and my husband's name is Pablo Vasquez. We have three children. We are from Oaxaca. We came here due to lack of money, and thanks to God our Heavenly Father and a lot of effort, we were able to buy a piece of land. It cost $85,000 pesos, and we have paid off $50,000. We halted payments for a while because my mother, in Oaxaca, was very ill. We had to go back to Oaxaca. Two of my children stayed with my mother to care for her so that I could work, because otherwise we would not have enough money. At this moment, I am not working, only my husband works, and because of this, we have more financial difficulties.

This is why we have not been able to build a better house. The house we currently have is made of cardboard and pallets. In this rainy season, all of our things were wet. This is why I want to ask for help with a house, and maybe some clothing, blankets, or a bed. If you are able to help us with a house, I can have my children with me, and a good place for them to live with my husband and I. 

- Eulogia
