Home for Julia
Date submitted: January 2019
Solicitor: Pastor Alex Diaz, Iglesia Brazos Abiertos (Church of the Open Arms), Horconcitos
Location: Horconcitos, Zacapa, Santa Barbara, Cortes, Honduras
Project justification: Julia is a 62-year old single woman. Her current home, constructed from mixed materials, has a rotting foundation that is in danger of crumbling. The wooden portions of the home are very old and termite-infested. She is in need of a safe, secure, and dignified dwelling.
Description: This project will provide a comfortable, two-room home constructed from cement block and wood siding, with a metal roof, cement floors, and a porch.
Supervisor’s Note: this project was originally solicited in 2015, and has been in development the past four years. Julia’s son passed away in 2018. Prior to his passing, he had worked a small coffee field to support his mother. Julia currently struggles to obtain the resources she needs for daily life.
