ABOUT THE FAMILY
Though she was born in Caborca, Maria has lived in Puerto Peñasco since she was a young child, and Raymundo has lived in Peñasco all of his life. They have been together for nine years and have four young children, all of whom are attending school. Raymundo works in construction, work that has busy times, but that can also be unpredictable. Maria currently has a job as a janitor at a local business. Maria is under treatment for hypertension, and three year old Jhonatan has asthma and requires regular medication and treatment. Both of these conditions put an additional strain on their already limited resources. The family is currently living on their land lot in a room they have managed to construct using salvaged materials. The roof leaks in the rain, and it has no secure door or windows. The family puts what they can into repairing the home, but are without the means to build a safe and decent house on their own. A house from 1MISSION would give this family a secure home where they can live safely, with protection from the elements. It would allow them to focus their limited resources on meeting their daily needs, seeing to their specific medical issues, and to work towards a secure future for the whole family.
