*November 9, 2010 Update*
We have gotten a donation to buy Victor a bed and mattress!
We'll be giving him this gift on Friday--He'll be thrilled (he was so thrilled just to get clothing donations)! Thank you so much for your support. We will be looking for other ways to improve Victor's living circumstances--The photos below can give you an idea of why. Stay tuned on how you can help.
|Victor slowly walking towards the entrance|
to his home (left). He has been supporting
himself with crutches.
|A close-up of Victor's bed. It is made of straw and wooden|
planks. Lumpy and hard to begin with, the bed now has a
hole that makes it unhealthy and extremely uncomfortable.
|A view of Victor's bed and about half of his room. The floor|
is dirt; there is no kitchen; and there are very large (one foot)
gaps in the walls, easily letting in wind and rain.
Victor has a first grade education. He does his best to support himself working as a day laborer despite chronic leg pain, and he is able to earn about $6 on days he can find work. Unfortunately, he can usually only find work about once a week, and $6 a week is not enough to keep him fed, clothed, and healthy. A sponsorship or donations to help him pay for food, vitamins, pain medicine, clothing, and shoes could make all the difference for Victor.
